These are authentic vintage 1950's cateye glasses with original hard case. They were in our costume rental shop but only ever used as a prop. They have a bit of a prescription to them but I am unsure what it is. When I put them on I can see clearly far away but it is a but blurry up close.
They dont have any visible damage, just the case has a bit of wear and tear on the outside metal edges.
According to the inside etching on the glasses, they were made by American Optical.
There is some green writing on the inside of the hard case that says "Optical Spectrapurse".
I have taken as detailed pics as I can, but please feel free to message me for more information or more pictures.
