51-23-140 These are just amazing.  1960's cat eye frames by Revue.  Style name is 'GYPSY'.
These are extremely rare and you'd be hard pressed to ever find another pair like these.   
Kindly read the entire description :-)
They are pre-owned but in EXCELLENT condition.  They're frame is made of a thick crystal clear acetate with brilliant gold tone hardware and wide tapered temples. 
Fronds are carved from the backside.  Undoubtably a great pair.  
George Aden was the genius behind Revue and all his frames were made in either France, Italy or Japan.  
This pair isn't marked with the country of origin.

The temples swing easy and the screws are tight.  Just a side note as to how these are assembled.
Do not attempt any adjustments to the hinges because there are special 'sleeves' that the screw is inserted in.  These plastic sleeves when new, created a tight fit within the hinge components.  This sleeve has worn down over the decades and that's why the temples open easily now.  The only way to address the 'swing easy' temple is to have new sleeves put in by an optician.  
To be honest,  it's a pain in the butt to do.  I wouldn't even bother.  They're fine the way they are.
Also,  the condition of the gold tone is brilliant.  The wide sections on the sides do have some light scratches.  
Please enlarge the side view photo so you can see what I'm talking about.

This cat will suit a an average oval, round, heart shaped face.  My face is narrow and oval and they're too big on me.  I typically wear frames 5" wide, with an inside hinge to hinge width of 4 3/4"..

I only have one pair.  Please note the following information:
