ANTIQUE NOSE PADS
     
  Art Craft, Shuron, Universal,  and B&L made replacement nose pads for their frames produced.  
  These nose pads fit several other brand frames due to the patent licensing going on back then.  
  The patents companies had on their nose pads were taken very serious by 5 main manufacturers.  
     
  American Optical made what they called "Repair Pads" for their Riveted-0n permanent nose pads.  
 

From the early 1900's into the early 70's AO made several models of their "Repair Pads".

 
 

These pads were seldom needed and shops usually only carried a few of them in stock.

 
 

This practice, of course, make the AO 'Repair" pads extremely rare today.
