Vintage men's eyeglasses. Cool retro style. Exact age unknown to me. Shiny silver color. Little rectangular brass colored accents on corners of rims and arms. For collection, use as a prop, or fix up for use.

Please note - it looks brass across the nose - that's just how it reflected, that part is silver colored.

Marked inside arm USOptical 6
Marked on inside of front ALUM 46 on each corner
Marked on nose piece 1/10 12K of 22

Approximate measurements - I make a good effort to get these as close as possible but still could be off by a small amount
5 5/16 inches across widest points
1 5/8 inches lens rim- top to bottom at the middle (outside edges)
1 1/4 inches lens rim across the middle of lens (outside edges)
1 3/4 inches arm length (behind front frame - to the bend that goes behind ear)

These have bifocal lenses in them. If you intend to use the glasses, you'll need to replace the lenses with your prescription.

I don't usually come across vintage glasses - so if I am missing something you want to know please let me know. I am pricing these low so that someone more knowledgeable can get them or you can get them economically to use as a prop.

CONDITION: These have some scratches to the frames - they don't show well in the photos since they are so shiny. You can see two of the worst ones in the first photo above the lens. Could use some additional cleaning. The brass accents need polished. Some wear to the rubber parts. Old brown case is included, they came to me in, so I'm sending it along.

From a smoke free home.
