Description

Snow goggles to protect the eyes from the blinding sun were carved from wood into a spectacle shape with a narrow slit acting as a lens. The slit was too small to fill with snow but large enough to allow an unrestricted view. A narrow leather band fit around the head to hold the goggles in place.
