This is an incredible pair of vintage 1950's Universal Aluminum brand eyeglasses. The frames are constructed of aluminum, while the nose bridge and eye rims are 12k White Gold Filled Metal (as marked on the inside of the nose bridge). The inside of each arm is marked "Universal Alum. 4 1/4- 5 3/4" and also are marked "46" just above each lens. The aluminum has an ornate leaf design with painted black accents on the front of the frames and the arms. The glasses are still in good condition, though they do show noticeable signs of wear from use over the years. The lenses that are currently in the glasses are bi-focal and show some moderate wear and scratching. The nose pieces and plastic coated temple are quite discolored and worn as well. All of the metal pins/screws that hold the glasses together are intact, but do show some slight corrosion. Overall, the frames themselves are still in nice condition, but do show some moderate pitting and surface scratches in a couple areas...most noticeably on the end of the right arm and on each side near the nose bridge. Also, the right hand side of the frame is slightly loose, but still securely intact and wouldn't inhibit wearing. These glasses offer a variety of possibilities for re-purposing, restoration, props, display, and much more.

The dimensions of the glasses are approximately:
Frame width: 5 1/4 inches
Lens height: 1 1/2 inches
Lens width: 1 7/8 inches
Arm length: 5 1/2 inches

The glasses will ship secured via USPS First-Class mail.
