Frames truly glow with color.
Primarily a cola bronze frame, created brilliantly with layered zils, and when sliced at the temples show their true colors. Best of course, in direct or bright indoor lighting.
They have an irridescent quality, almost like fish scales.. where you look at these from one angle, and they look dark.. but when you tilt your head, all of a sudden, the stripes are apparent. Tips shine chartruese, silver, cyan, coffee, and bronze. Inside frame is black.

Frames marked PARIS FRANCE.
FRAME FRANCE.

7 barrel hinges working as they should.
Silver metal waves at each temple, where the hinges meet the frame..
Frames were polished, straightened and cleaned, ready for your prescription.
No lenses.
New, unused vintage stock.
These frames are in excellent condition.

Aprox. Opthalmic measurements as follows:
Frames measure 5 1/2" across, tip to tip ( about 140mm).
Bridge DBL (distance between lenses) is 18mm.
Distance between the bridge space is about 10mm.
(both measurements above, taken across the center of the frame).
Lens width is (1 3/4") 45mm.
Lens height is (3/4") 25mm.
Inside hinge to hinge is (4 1/2") 118mm.

Pupil to pupil distance is (2 1/2") 65mm.

Generally, sleek and slim cat eye specs are a good shape, for round faces. Unlike mine, I have a long oval face, and I feel these are not flattering for me, but are shown for an example to help you decide.
Fuller cat eye frames look best on me (longer, oval faces.)

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.

All my items for sale come from a non smoking home.
