In 1950 this pair of glasses was given by Fausto Coppi to Brussels taxi driver Alfred Tomme (pictured in the beret at the side of Fausto) who was hired as a private driver to transport Fausto to Belgium classics including his win at La Fleche Wallone that season.


Alfred kept them until 1995, when at the age of 82 he donated them to a private museum in Brussels dedicated to cycling. The collection was dispersed in 2016.
