Authentic Replica Frames for Historical Enthusiasts

Battlefield McAllister eyeglasses were carefully created for historical enthusiasts such as Civil War reenactors. These durable steel alloy metal frames mimic the wonderfully timeless and elegant look of the most popular eyewear shape of the 1800s, the rounded oval. The 42 mm eye size easily fits a large man's head as well as a petite woman's 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. The length has been designed to easily adjust for a large or narrow head.

Battlefield McCallisters are popular among Civil War and other historical enthusiasts.

These eyeglasses – similar to both Windsors and Peabody-Pierce #23 frames – are a fantastic and authentic finishing touch to a fine historical impression, completing a period costume, or a uniquely comfortable pair for everyday wear.
