1970's pre owned Christian Dior 360 degree eyeglass frames.
A rare find, and a style currently high in demand.
Made in Germany.
An interesting tortoise zil, with gold metal rims hugging the lenses.
The rim opens, to allow the lenses to be changed.
Firm hinges.
Frames have been polished, cleaned, straightened,
and ready for your prescription.
They are in excellent condition.
Great size for prescription sunnies.
The lenses are currently a light prescription for far sightedness.
I will remove them, so that you may try these on, without any distortion,
while looking at yourself in the mirror.
Let me know if you prefer them in the frame.
Otherwise they will be removed and included with your order.

Aprox. Ophthalmic measurements as follows:

Frames measure 5 3/8" across, tip to tip ( about 138mm).
Bridge DBL (distance between lenses) is 25mm.
Distance between the bridge space is about 13mm.
Lens width is (1 7/8") 47mm.
Lens height is the same as width.
Above lens and bridge measurements taken across the center of the frame.

Inside hinge to hinge is 5 1/8" (130mm).
Temple length is (5 1/4") 135mm, from hinge to end, including ear curve..
Pupil to pupil distance is (2 3/4") 72mm.

Generally, full round specs look good on oval, long faces, like mine,
though these are just a tad too large for me. Though, I would wear them.
I'm the gal in the photo.

Back to my Etsy Front Page for more unusual obsessions:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/BackThennishVintage
and then click on the 'Eyewear' category on the left hand side,
if you want to see more specs :)

Please make sure your optician will happily fill your prescription, with frames you walk in with. I guarantee that my frames are optical quality.
Online lens replacement labs are generally cheaper than brick and mortar eyeglass chain stores when it comes to filling your prescription.

Kindly read my eyewear guide, under my shop policies, or follow this link.

These frames are great quality, and feel good in your hands, comfortable, and are higher end acetates, that any optican would love to fill with a sunglass prescription, or your clear, everyday prescription. These would likely sell for about $600 in an optical shop if you could find them now.

Comes with a protective case. REMEMBER~ Measure your own frames, and compare to my measurements for a sure fit, cause not all heads/eyeglasses are the same size :-))

I realize the difficulty of buying eyewear online. I am happy to model any pair, and give you some guidance. My vintage eyewear is returnable within 7 days of receipt.

Your Homework assignment is:
Ask for photographs of me wearing them, (if necessary).
Please measure a pair of your own frames, to see if these will fit you,
as not all heads are the same size.
Print out this listing, and make sure your optician will put lenses into frames that you walk into their establishment with. Many are not taking kindly to this, as they will tell you just about anything, to get you to buy their own frames.
If they tell you that they cannot do it, take these babes elsewhere, or send them to an online optical lab. Many online places will happily do it for less.

I have a second business on the internet, selling reading glasses, and eyeglass frames, for 10 years, and I have heard it all, seen it all.

Kindly read my store policies, as there may be information there, that pertains to your order.
Domestic shipping includes delivery confirmation.
International buyers welcome....
