Red Check Cat Eye

Red Check Cat Eye

90's Vintage
Red checkered cat eye reading glasses by Melissa Eyewear. Vintage 1990's beautiful acetate frames that'll make you purr.

These are beautiful, 
hand made and hand polished layered frames. 
High end, better quality acetates in an Italian design frame. 
These were manufactured in the late 1990's.
I closed them out with the vendor Melissa Eyewear 
back when I started my business 20 years ago. 
She wholesaled them for $68 a piece back then. 
She continues to produce expensive quality eyeglasses today. 
These are long discontinued. 
Frames like these would retail for over $200 in optical shops and boutiques if you can find them. 

Suitable for your own prescription if you like them for the frames. 
You won't be disappointed. 
Made with polycarbonate lenses in increments of 1.00, 1.50, 2.00 and 2.50. 
Italian laminate acetates, they feel expensive in your hands 
\and will look like a million on your face. 
Let them make you purr...

This shape suits an oval, round or square face best. 
I have a long oval face and these are not the right shape for me.
