50's Hornrims

These gorgeous frames are new unused vintage inventory from the 1950's.  
Grey fade crystal eyeglass frames excellent condition and ready for your own Rx.  
Grey is cool, and because of the frame's transparent attributes, it will take the hue of your skin color.
Clear half is clear and has not yellowed.
Silver hardware and sturdy riveted barrel hinges.  

Please make sure you read the stated measurements and compare them to a pair you currently wear. These originals are NOT returnable, an exception to my return policy.  
Frames are NOT one size fit all!

A great pair of unisex hornrims. As worn by Matt Damon in the movie ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’.  

These suit an average oval, rectangular or heart shaped face.  Wear what you like.  
Not all frames were identified on the temple therefore most frames go unknown as far as manufacturers were concerned.  
These are not marked Eastern States Optical, though I have a large selection of vintage frames with ESO product sleeves,  this pair also came in a light brown fade, Demi Amber and black and has a product sleeve.  Style is called Explorer.
