One look at you doing the Sunday morning crossword in these black plastic cateye glasses and the only thing anyone will be reading is “stylishly smart.” Marked ZWC the black cateye glasses are angled down slightly as readers to be worn a bit down the nose. They feature silver-toned double dot metal details on the corners of each stem

The eyeglasses are in good vintage condition with some minor scuffing on the ends of the ear pieces and inside. There is a slight twist in the frams and the left hinge is also a bit loose and swings slightly outward, however these should be easy fixes for your optician when you have your lenses put in and the glasses adjusted for your face. As mentioned earlier these are situated as reading glasses and they are angled slightly downward to be worn a bit down the nose. The eyewear currently contains prescription lenses that will need to be replaced with your own prescription lenses.

Lens size – 46mm
Bridge size -20mm
Temple Length (stems) -5 1/2" (total length including bend)
Across Front- 5 1/8"
Lens Brow to cheek (including frame)- 1 3/8"
Inside Hinge To Hinge- 4 3/4"

Please remember to read the store policies and check that your optician/optical shop will put lenses in vintage glasses before you purchase. All sales are AS IS, please read our return policy before purchasing.

We strive to ensure you are happy with your purchase so please feel free to ask questions!
