The Eyewear Stand is a cast brass pedestal that is crafted in humble service of spectacles. All too often our glasses are haphazardly set down on a desk or bedside table—arms slightly askew—susceptible to errant fumbling, scratching, and misplacement. With the Eyewear Stand, these essential, sight-giving, sun-blocking objects can be appropriately anchored and enthroned. Accommodating a wide range of frames, the Eyewear Stand appears to be leaning back, fully reclined. And when you place your glasses on it, a distinct face-like quality emerges—a museum moment with a faint whiff of Groucho Marx. 3” x 2” x 1.25” Cast Brass
