We managed to find another great example of vintage eyewear for our 'Speed 13' aficionados. True vintage Baruffaldi™ safety goggles.
This is a vintage pair of "Baruffaldi - Made in Italy" 1940's (Est.) riding goggles.These appear to have original strap which is now losing its integrity.The rubber edges around the "eyes" are also beginning to dry out and have some crack due to age (don't we all).
The glass lenses are in good shape.These are collectible goggles and should be used as display items - not safety tested as they are vintage !
MARKINGS: Baruffaldi Made in Italy (on nose bridge).
FRONT MEASURES: 7 1/2" (from outside of front of google to the right).
Each LENSE is APPROX.: 3" wide (each) x 2 1/2" (high).
Please see all photos as they are part of the description and use the "zoom" feature to better assess the condition.Please also note that while the lenses are not cracked, chipped, or heavily scratched there are some tiny blemishes in the glass.Be sure to take a look at our final close-up photo so you can see what we're talking about. The rubber cushion around the vented frame and the frame itself both appear to be fully intact and serviceable. Based on the design, we guess that this vintage pair of safety goggles could originally have been used for motorcyclists - only a guess. Universal adjustable fit - one size fits most. Enjoy!.
A fine old pair of goggles to collect and display or can be used. Don't miss them
These are getting harder and harder to find.
