Authentic Replica Frames for Civil War & Historical Enthusiasts!
Battlefield McAllister eyeglasses were carefully created for historical enthusiasts such as Civil War or colonial reenactors. In fact, the prop master for the broadway musical Hamilton ordered five Battlefield eye frames for the touring company!
These durable steel alloy metal frames mimic the look of the rounded oval eyewear shape of the 18th and 19th centuries. The 42 mm eye size easily fits a wide as well as a slender face. The bridge rests comfortably upon the nose via the saddle bridge commonly used during the era. The arms on the McAllisters are also quite unique: straight with a slight curve, inward toward the head, at the ends. This completes the antique look while also providing great comfort.
These eyeglasses – similar to Windsors and Peabody-Pierce #23 – are an authentic finishing touch to a fine historical impression or completing a period costume. Please note: No discounts are applied towards the purchase of these frames and an eyeglass case is not included with purchase. Also, McAllisters are available with only one of the following lens options:
- As readers with diopter strength of +1.25 or +2.50 or +3.25
- Non-prescription clear lenses
- Non-prescription sun lenses in grey color (Grey color sun lens is period- authentic)
Battlefields were designed for war re-enactors and we purposefully made the quality on par with keeping them affordable. They are intended for occasional wear and not designed for everyday use.
