Got Pink?
Pink, yet on the salmon pink side.
Transparent to some degree.
Frames are fabulous.
Tight hinges, from the 50's.
Pair of star studs at each point where the hinge is mounted to the frame.
Straightened and ready for your RX
No lenses.
New old 50's stock.
In perfect condition.

Aprox. Opthalmic measurements as follows:

Frame marked 44 22
Frames measure 5 3/16" across, tip to tip ( about 133mm).
Bridge DBL (distance between lenses) is 22mm.
Lens width is (1 11/16") 44mm.
Lens height is (1 1/4") 33mm.
Above lens and bridge measurements taken across the center of the frame.

Generally, full feline specs look good on oval, long faces, like mine.
I'm the gal in the photo.
Narrower shorter cat eyes look best on rounder, or squarer 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 great quality, 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. These would likely sell for about $375 in an optical shop, if you can find them.

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.
