Rare 50's Atomic Era Frame
You'll never come across a pair of eyeglass frames like this.
Just when you thought your fetish of starburst items has come to a peak...
.....you see these.
True vintage 50's warm deep tortoise cat eye frames with hand painted atomic stars and aurora borealis rhinestones in the center of each one.
These are fitted w genuine vintage 40's grey glass sunglass clip ons.
Both made in the USA.
Only 1 available.
Unique and one of a kind.
Frames have strong 5 barrel hinges
and the temples are riveted to the frame with a pair of shiny brass diamond shaped studs at every corner.
The frames have a few marks on the end of one temple which tried my best to polish down. Please see the 'before' and 'after' shots. The little marks are not noticeable in certain angles. Depends on how I held them in the light.
These are new old stock and they've never been worn.
There's no gold wear on these babies.
Straightened, polished and ready for your Rx.
Temples are paddle style and will curve inwards to hug the back of your ears.
The sunglass clips are gold gilded with grey glass lenses that are virtually scratch free.
They are fitted to these frames.
They are unmarked though may be Ray Bans, or American Optical.
A duo ready for any pin up/midcentury lover.
They are hard to come by as a duo.

Note: We work side by side with an online lab called ReplaceALens.com that charges wholesale prices for lenses that we recommend to all our eyewear buyers. Their prices are 2/3rds less than your local neighborhood optical shops. Visit their website. They never turn down any of our optical frames. Our frames are guaranteed with a free replacement or refund in case the lab damages them while they install your lenses. No other optician would give you such a promise. Only we do.
