Vintage 1950s Browline Etched Aluminum Glasses Frames
Vintage 1950's browline sunglasses in champagne brushed aluminum and gold wire rim, with an etched leaf design. Nose pads are adjustable. The arms are marked American Optical Alum 5-1/2. The frames are marked Alum 46. Currently these frames have prescription lenses which can be replaced by your local optician with a new Rx or standard tinted sunglass lenses. Included is a carrying case that I have made from vintage shibori dyed kimono silk. Frames are in very good condition, showing just light scuffing over the right brow and average wear at the ears. Please inspect all photos in detail.
