The Jas Townsend & Son company is one of the least expensive sources for reproduction eyeglass frames that I have seen. They now have an early 19th century set as cheap as $17.50. They are honest and admit that set is "unplated (brass) so they will turn your face green.". But if you coat the bits that touch skin with some clear fingernail polish you should be able to avoid that. They currently have two 19th century styles and they were also carrying some pince nez frames for a while, but they have been having problems getting more of the Pince nez from the maker when I asked about them in October.

Those are all quite reasonable! I will have to look into that.

I've got a pair of their 18th century frames for reenacting and have been happy with them.
