Color: Black, Caramel, Green

Make: no make as marked – most of these tooled leather bags of this style originated from individual crafters in Latin America in the 1950s and 1960s.

Condition: GOOD vintage condition, especially in consideration of its age. The color of the leather has stayed fast and vibrant, the green is especially becoming. There are some small portions where the tint has worn off in the front revealing whiter leather beneath, and there is a white line-like mark on the back of the bag on the black top, which may be removable with polish and attention. The leather is flexible but not as supple as would be ideal. There is some wear around the leather around the handles and the clasp is tarnishing, although to some this might add to the charm of the bag. Inside is in great shape and bottom shows little to no wear despite the fact that it does not have feet.

Frequently asked questions about OliverandAlexa

Let’s take the example of the standard size “48—19—140” (you can find this measurement, listed like this, under “size as marked” in our listings.”)

“48” represents the size of the lenses (on most frames, the width across the front face.) In most womens frames, this size can go from 42-50, with some variance. In most men’s frames, this initial size is on average between 48-54.

“19,” our second number, is the bridge sizwhich ensures how the frame fits your nose.

Finally, “140” is the temple length, or essentially how long the temple arm is in order to hook over your ears.

Comparing these number in your current glasses to those provided in our listings will help you feel confident in selecting the right pair for you.
Yes! All of Oliver & Alexa's eyeglasses are guaranteed "Optical Ready" which means they are ready to be lensed at your local opticians.
We specialize at Oliver & Alexa in Deadstock and NOS (New Old Stock) frames, which means that these frames are authentically vintage (at least 20-years-old and often more than a half-a-decade or older) but were never lensed or worn, but instead sat in storage.

Deadstock and NOS frames are prized by vintage collectors because their condition is vintage pristine and they lend themselves to heat-treatment and lensing more easily.
