Eyeglasses that'll stay on your head.
These are great while wearing any face mask as the temples wrap around your ears.
Your glasses won't fly off your head.
Saving your lenses from cracking AND your eyeglass frames.

NEW OLD STOCK.  
Redwood striated mica reds/blacks..
Strong 5 barrel hinges.
Tapered lens opening differs from the original Arnel shape. 
These are called 'Arnel Junior'. 
Make sure you measure your own glasses by referring to my measuring chart and compare your numbers to mine for fit.
These are NARROW.
They fit me because I have a narrow adult face.

Temples are 6 1/2" long (160mm).
Flexible gold plated coils that can be bent a little more than pictured. You may want to adjust the very end, or put cable tips on the ends as well.
I have a pair of tips I will include for free,  your optician will put them on for you. They need to be heated in order to pass onto the cables.
The temples are made by SRO. Married to a Tart Arnel Junior frame front.
The studs were corroded (see shot with product envelope) and after polishing, the gold-plate is gone. The studs are now silver -tone.
These temples are new old stock, never used, and made right in my home town,  Flushing NY,  back in the 1950's
These are authentic frames from a retired Optician's inventory.

They're in excellent unused condition,  no yellowing to the clear part.
There's no shrinkage to the nylon.
This is my only pair.
