Spectacles which belonged to Jean Armour Burns

These plain metal framed spectacles are believed to have belonged to Jean Armour, Robert Burns' wife.   Jean Armour Burns continued to live in the family home in Dumfries following the poet's death in 1796.  She remained there for the rest of her life and by the time of her own death in 1834, the house had become a place of pilgrimage.  Relics of Robert Burns, Jean Armour Burns and their household were treasured and preserved.
