SRO Hornrim Frames

NOS Vintage 60's
New Old Stock prescription eyeglass frames by SRO USA. Coveted and rare in this size. We've got them in 3 colors but only a few. Vintage unused stock from the 1960's.

New Old Stock prescription eyeglass frames by SRO USA.   Coveted and rare in this size. We've got them in 2 colors but only a few pieces, right now having 2 in Black, one has a slightly larger bridge than the other. Use selector to choose the desired bridge on the blacks. Not sure if I've got another Tortoise so that's why it's priced higher than the others. Black/clear sold out.

and please note ONLY the Black/Clear pair is marked SRO USA 5 1/2..  The Tortoise and the Black frames do not have the SRO logo and only say USA 5 1/2. This is because the manufacturers weren't always consistent with their logo identifications on the actual temples. The original wrapping for each frame front and temple packaging would have the manufacturer on it, not necessarily the temples themselves. It is presumed since all three pairs are identical in style, they are indeed SRO's as one of them is marked, and the other 2 have 'half' the identical temple information inscribed on them.

Vintage unused stock from the 1960's. Part of a retired optician's defunct inventory that I acquired recently. They're in excellent like new condition, straightened and ready for your Rx. Only here at Retro Focus Eyewear.

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. Tell them Desi sentcha from Retro Focus Eyewear.
