1960's round thick eyeglass frames in Warm Tortoise. Black has SOLD. 
Made in USA by Victory Optical.
Vintage unused new old stock.

The frame fronts measure 4mm thick (3/16") and their temples measure 3mm thick.
I've only got one pair of each of these and don't think my vintage supplier has another.  
This pair came right off his shelves and date back to the 1960's.  
In perfect condition and will suit a long, oval, oblong narrow face. 
I'm the model and I have a narrow oval face and they're perfect on me.   

Strong double star rivets and 5 barrel hinges.
Please note the temples length on these......Marked 5 1/4" (135mm), so those of you who need 140mm (5 1/2" temples)
these will be too short for you and you won't be comfortable in them.
