JOHN LENNON'S glasses circa 1965 (with letters of provenance) The Beatles:
A pair of John Lennon's glasses circa 1965
A pair of John Lennon's iconic wire rim eyeglasses. The gold tone Windsor spectacles come housed in a case labelled "Alfred Hawes & Son, Ltd. London & Branches". Lennon wore contact lenses during the early Beatles years and only adopted round Windsor eyeglasses in public in 1966, wearing themfirst whilst playingPrivate Gripweedin Richard Lester's filmHow I Won The War. This pair of glasses predate the film so may well be the first pair ofthe famous roundglasses the Beatle ever owned.
They come with excellent provenance in the form of a letter of authenticity and Statutory Declaration from Barry Jarlett. Barry is the son for Dorothy "Dot" Jarlett, who was the housekeeper for John and Cynthia Lennon at their home in Kenwood from their arrival in 1964 until their separation in 1968. Dotwas very close to the family, especially Cynthia,as she took care of a young Julian as well as managing the house. In 1965, Dot asked John if her brother, Tony Haylor, could borrow a pair of glasses to complete his schoolboy outfit for a Just William fancy dress party he was due to attend. Lennon was only too happy to oblige, having been a huge fan of the Just William stories since childhood. The glasses remained in the possession of the Jarlett family from 1965 until 2015, when they were sold via public sale.
