A very rare pair of deep cobalt blue sunglasses.
This frame has a nice flat brow which lot's of designers are copying now.  
The sizing is for an average head.  It's temples are on the shorter side (135mm or 5 1/4") 
so if you normally need long temples to reach your ears, you may want to double check if these will be long enough.  
Pre-owned 1950's true vintage sunglasses,  made in France. 
Lenses are not prescription so anyone can wear them.  Lenses are virtually scratch free.  Crisp and clear.

There is 1 flaw.  See photo with red oval circles indicating the flaw.  The left temple was stressed at one point right at the hinge mount.
The acetate is cracked right about the hinge plate.  The temple itself is still secure to the mount, there is a little wiggle but not obvious or annoying. These are very wearable as is and have years left in them.  
I am going to strengthen this area with plastic glue and a clamp.  
The glue I use fuses the plastic and will strengthen the damage.  
The photos you are seeing are before my attempt and I will post a new photo after I've made the restoration.

These are not returnable.
