Mid-century sunglasses bring a unique twist to personal style and these restored fifties vintage eyeglasses are a classic choice.

Restored eyewear is the love story of discovering a diamond in the rough; hours of time and examination are poured into a pair of frames to bring them back to life and these mid-century modern sunglasses are a true treasure. Rich with tiny scrolling details on the nose bridge, a pair of stunning new sunset gold polarized lenses have been hand cut and shaped to finish off the eye accessory. Marked as an authentic twelve karat gold filled pair of glasses, the makers mark and gold content stamp is easily seen on the inside of the nose bridge, only makes these an even richer delight to wear and appreciate.

Nicknamed the 'brow frame' style because of its top heavy design, brow frames were popular during the fifties for their very clean look. The upper portion of the frame (the "brows" or "caps") and temples were made of plastic and the remainder of the frame to be made of metal. This solid looking frame design added an air of sophistication to the wearers face, quickly becoming the go to eyewear style of the mid-century. Browline eyewear was quickly caught on by other companies and was made slightly different by each company by changing the side 'plaques', small decals on each side of the frame, and as a result of this popularity many famous figures from the mid-20th century are pictured wearing browlines, including black liberationist Malcolm X and Lyndon B. Johnson.^, ^^

Dated to have been made originally during the early 1950s by an eyewear company called Art Craft, these rose coral pink and moss green plastic frames with gold metal parts inspire the need for more road trips! Their dainty uplifted wing frame is a subtle nod towards the desirable 'cat- eye' frame without being over the top and two small metal oval plaques adorn each corner on either side of the frame and on each arm as well.

Keep them safe by choosing a case type and soon this vintage accessory will be on it's way to greet the new day with you. A paragon of vintage uniqueness, this handsome piece of eyewear fashion is a style conscious travelers delight to use and show off again and again. Slip on some history and drive off towards the sun in style with an accessory inspired by the past and made for modern use.
