Vintage Lucas headlight glass 501598 in original wrapping for Rover Riley or Hillman etc

Lucas 501598 headlamp glass unused, I presume, in original wrapping. The contemporary Lucas catalogue shows these lenses as used on Rover 14 & 16 from 1937/38, also Riley 9hp 1938 and Hillman 16 and 20hp 1936/37 and possibly others. These are 8 ½” diameter lenses presumably for a 9” overall rim etc. with ¼” flutes and plain centre (see photos). They are asterisked as “Sports” or “Speed” lenses whateve that means. They are also described separately as lenses for lamp type LBD150S the “High Power, Long Range Projector” lamps which may mean other makes used them also.
I acquired 3 of these glasses with my car but they do not belong so I want them to go where they will be used. I would prioritise anyone wanting a pair but that still leaves a single to be had. Offered to RSR members first before they go on EBay. I have not seen any examples of this lens for sale on the internet at all over the last 6 years so I guess they are pretty rare albeit a bit specialised. Contact me on info@robhomewood.com
£60 EACH plus P&P.
