Antique Willson 8 sided Octagon green sunglasses. Nicolas Cage wears a pair in the movie 'Face Off'.  Alternative irreverent coolness for any genre.

*****SOLD*****Antique 8 sided octagon green sunglasses. Actor Nicolas Cage wore a pair similar to these in the movie 'Face Off'. Alternative irreverent coolness for any genre.   Original chartreuse green glass lenses which have a slight curvature to them.  There are very few light scratches on each lens which doesn't interfere with vision.  These lenses are crystal clean and beautiful.  Thin profile and very comfortable. 6" long flexible leather covered cable temples with a saddle bridge marked 'WILLSON'. 

The frame is silver gilded brass and shows a little bit of color wear on the ball ends.  I can polish it if you want the brass to shine.

The leather cable covers are in excellent condition and in the photos they show a little surface whitening but they're not cracking.  I've since moisturized the covers with my own moisturing mixture of beeswax and essential oil which eliminated the whiteness you see in the photographs. Frame is strong and suited for a petite to slightly average head. Not recommended for those of you who wear frames wider than 5" or these will eventually start to bow outwards.  Not healthy for any frame if this happens (an indication your frames are too narrow for your face). 

One available only here at Retro Focus Eyewear.
