Vintage Glass Eye From 1901

This is not the first or last glass eye I will share here. They are just so rad looking!

“Glass was the obvious material for artificial eyes in the early 20th century. This eye is hemispherical and remarkably lifelike. It was made by the eye maker Gustav Taylor. He prided himself on the natural appearance of his artificial eyes. Taylor handcrafted them within an hour for customers while they waited. maker: Taylor, Gustav Place made: London, Greater London, England, United Kingdom.” – Image source.
