These are a classic, pristine example in 10-12 karat gold plated metal of the revolutionary Ful Vue line of eye wear by American Optical, made originally in the 1930s, identically until the 1950's. The ornamentation on this pair shows it is from the 1930s or 1940s. 

The Numont style frames have an ingenious design that holds the lens in place with a single screw set – The temples float invisibly above your line of vision, imparting uninterrupted, “full view” of your surroundings. 

The nose bridge, eye wire and each temple are each stamped with American Optical “AO” logos. They are an ample size for a medium to large size modern face.

They are fitted with old glass light prescription bifocal lenses,with all components in Very very Good Vintage Condition, without any corrosion or aging, and are perfect to be fitted with your prescription lenses, sunglass of any tint, or non prescription demo lenses by an optician who is experienced in fitting antique and vintage eyewear.
