Rectangular leather-covered case, containing 10 assorted white glass artificial eyes, made by W. Halford of London, English, 1870-1920
A range of different sizes, shapes and iris colours is shown in this leather case containing ten glass artificial eyes. These were likely to be carried by an eye specialist or an artificial eye maker to assist them in making the best possible match to the patient’s remaining eye.
In the 1940s, glass was replaced by plastics, which were more comfortable for the wearer and lasted longer. These eyes were made by W Halford of London.
