Title devised by cataloguer. Produced as a set of 50 glass prosthetic human eyes of varying colours, manufactured in France between 1880 and 1885. Contained in their original blue printed paper sample box (17 x 27 cm.), with each eye in its own compartment (3 x 2.5 cm.). Box includes 50 compartments.This sample set includes an extra child's-size eye. These eyes were used by a representative of the manufacturer to show doctors the scope from which they might want to place an order. They were thereafter used by the doctor as models for fitting a patient who had lost an eye. Sizes range from adult to children, both right and left eyes, with a selection of colors and different shades of white, all hand painted.
