SRO Tortoise Hornrim

SRO Tortoise Hornrim

1960's Vintage
Share this find on:

Thick, chunky frames in a warm tortoise brown.  Strong barrel hinges with crown rivets everywhere the hinges mount to the frame. The temple ends are lightly ridged for added stability behind your ears.  New old stock, nylon frame,  never worn.  Straightened and ready for your prescription.  There is one very small dent on the stem where the hinge is mounted, by the rivet. It can be seen in 3rd photo. It's not shrinkage of the nylon. Just a small imperfection which is reflected in it's price. Made in the USA.

These SRO hornrims are part of the vintage optical inventory I purchased.  One of a kind, only one available.  These are a narrow width frame suiting a narrow adult sized head. I am modeling them for a point of reference.  I have a narrow oval face and these suit me.   Please read specs below.
