These are some of the same kind of ski goggles that were worn presumably by Horace Quick in one of the most famous American paintings of a skier. Mead Schaffer was assigned by the Saturday Evening Post to portray the servicemen of WWII, he made 14 paintings, the one with the ski goggles worn by Horace appeared on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post, March 23rd 1943 issue. If you are a military, ski, or WWII collector you should look up this information it’s pretty cool. Not only worn by Horace but many fearless American servicemen, this is a rare opportunity to own authentic pair of these goggles. Manufactured by Foster Grant in the 1940’s for the 10th Mountain Division of WWII. These goggles feature metal frames with cotton canvas and faux fur contoured eye pieces. Adjustable leather nose piece and an adjustable elastic strap for around your head. Green tinted real glass lenses make these goggles extra special. All Goggles come in a their original leatherette case. Unused/Used Nice Condition Mixed.

Will these fit over glasses

Yes and No: Yes, there is a small amount of room between the lenses where a very thin/flush eyeglass frame MAY fit. NO" because unless it is a perfect fit, the eyeglasses would be pinched to the head at the contact points where the goggles fit flush (if that makes sense).
