Fig. 2 is an elevational view of the spectacle 45 shade per-se. ' - > Fig. 3 is a perspective view of a ‘spectacle shade 50 pivotally holding these parts together. With this arrangement the sectionsv IIIh and l0=_may be pivoted to superimposed positions to reduce the. 35 . compass of the spectacle shade which then may ?t into one's spectacle case. In Fig. 4 another modi?ed form of the invention has been ‘disclosed in which the visor is 40 formed from sections Ill‘1 and IM. These sec tions have overlapping inner‘ends It’, as clearly shown in Fig. 4.
