Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
These classic cateye glasses made in the USA by Bausch & Lomb make a retro statement that cannot be denied. Made of aluminum, the glasses are a pale rose-gold in color with etching detail along the brow, temples, stems and bridge. The bridge is labeled 1/10 12 kt gold filled.

The glasses are in very good vintage condition with the only signs of wear being minor tarnishing along the hinges and nose pieces (primarily on the inside). The glasses currently contain prescription bifocal lenses that will need to be replaced with your own prescription or sun lenses.

Lens size – 42 mm
Bridge size – 20 mm
Temple Length (stems) -5 1/4" (total length including bend)
Across Front- 5"
Lens Brow to cheek (including frame)- 1 1/2"
Inside Hinge To Hinge- 4 1/2"

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!
