1950's vintage cat eye frames, ready for your own prescription. Optical frame done in a glowing topaz brown frame, made in the good'ol USA. Brass stars everywhere the hinge meets the frame. Topaz bronze brown frames, with aurora borealis rhinestones, and brass studs. These felines show their best color in the bright sunlight. In excellent, unused condition.

Aprox. Opthalmic measurements as follows:
Frames measure 5 1/8" across, tip to tip (142mm).
Bridge DBL (distance between lenses) is 21mm.
Lens width is (1 5/8") 44mm.
Lens height is (1 1/8") 29mm.
Inside hinge to hinge is (4 5/8") 118mm.
Temple length is (5 1/2") 140mm.

Full cats, like these, rounds and large ovals, are a good shape, for long, oval or narrow faces, like mine. Anything, with a full lens.
If you have a round face, you are better off looking at sleeker cat eye frames, or narrow rectangular ones.

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 expensive, 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.

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.
