I don't know how the original engine handles it, but i also don't see an issue here.

The "spectacles" are an recurring object, which means that, even if you mess up getting them the first time, there is an infinite amount of them available for you to try to retrieve, hence the "spectacles" hotspot being clickable all the time.
Even the object graphic for the "spectacles" on the bookcase is depicted as a "box" and not the spectacles graphic they used when the object is out of the box, further pointing toward an infinite amount of that object.

What the game does, in case of a successful retrieval of the "spectacles", is to remove the hotspot from the "collonade" and as such making the "spectacles" unreachable for Fulbert after that.

Sounds pretty legit to me.
