A stunning and very rare pair of late '40s sunglasses, with golden wire frame and fabulously shaped perspex lenses to resemble butterfly wings. Trimming the brow and wrapping around the bridge is a thin silvertone strip, with tiny dimples that give an overall impression of being studded with marcasite! Pewter coloured pearls finish off the edges of these awesome shades :)

Front width- 6"
Inner hinge to hinge- just over 5"
Total arm length- 5.75"

In great condition for the age and delicate construction, there's a touch of spotted discolouration to the goldtone in places and some very gentle surface use to the perspex, but nothing noticable when worn, And some tarnishing inside the plastic arm ends which isn't seen :)
