Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
Subtle cat eyes, soft steel blue, laminated on a black, beveled frame. Hand polished frame, sturdy 5 barrel hinges, make this a fabulous frame for red heads, to black heads, brunettes to blondes.
Frames are new, unused 1960's vintage stock, and they are made in France.
Book piece ( in copper colored frames), page 41 in 'SPECS APPEAL', Extravagant 1950's and 1960's Eyewear, published by Schiffer.

Frames are in excellent unused condition.

Opthalmic measurements as follows:
Frames measure just under 5" across, tip to tip (127mm).
Bridge (DBL) is 20mm.
Distance between bridge is 12mm.
Pupil to pupil distance is 2 3/8" (60mm).
Lens width is (1 5/8") 40mm.
Lens height is (1") 26mm.
Inside hinge to hinge is (4 1/2") 115mm. (great size for a small adult head)
Temple length is (5 3/8") 135mm, measured from hinge mounting, and including ear bend.

Frames such as these, made in France, would easily retail for over $250 in a high end optical shop.

PLEASE NOTE:
Generally, full, average shaped cat eye frames are a good shape, for long, oval or narrow faces, like mine. I'm the gal in the photo.....

......but! These are WAY too small for my oval head.
A shorter, smaller head would carry these frames better than I.
I normally wear a frame with an inside hinge to hinge of at least 5".
These measure 4 1/2" from hinge to hinge, inside the frame.

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.
