These are very early vintage Bausch & Lomb 12K gold filled sunglasses c 1950s that are ready for your own prescription. These are hard to find and are clearly marked B&L 1/10 12K GF 18-46. The 12 K gold plated ear stems are marked 5 3/4. They have a cat eye shape that is quite unique. There is a very soft and light green tint to the RX lens and these were specifically make for easy use of prescription or custom lenses. The frames are a steel olive color with adorable silver accents. The nose pads are etched for additional flair. The frame is all metal. These glasses pre-date the Ray-ban brand. Rare.

Vintage, is well, old and has traveled through time. The items I present have been well loved and have their own stories to tell. They all have natural occurring flaws, which in most cases add to the visual interest. I do my best to point these out for each item but if you are looking for perfection you probably won’t find that here in my shop.
I ship just about anywhere so if you are outside the USA convo me with an address and I will reserve it for you while I get you an actual quote. I will ship the most economical route but if you have a preference, please let me know prior to payment. Any shipping costs over $2.00 will be credited to you. I love to combine shipping and I LOVE to use recycled packaging.
