These sunglasses are amazing. They are from the art deco era, and have a very unique style. Wearing an original piece of antique Americana, you will be stylin in these sunglasses. These gems are almost 100 years old!

The lenses are in mint condition with no scratches, which is astonishing, due to their age. I see a microscopic chip on one lens, but only if I examine closely.

The frames are made of BAKELITE, an early hard plastic material. The frames are a transparent light brown color.

The arms of these sunglasses tend to have a bit of an inward bend on each side. Over the years, the bakelite material has been sensitive to the preservation; as a result, I see some wear on the frames consisting of light scratches/marks, specifically where the sunglasses were folded on either arm.

The arms are secured by a very unusual sturdy small hollow hardware screw rings on each side.

They measure:
Each Lens- just over 2 inches
Total Width- 5 inches
Each Arm- 5 inches

This round style happens to be right on-trend too..... so thats right, go ahead and treat yourself, and stand out in the crowd.
