38-20-140 Tart Arnel
RARE 50's Eyewear.  Petite fit, small head people, small adult faces.  Tart Optical horn rimmed vintage frames.  Style name 'Arnel Junior'.  Great things come in small packages.

Redwood striated mica reds/blacks with silver tone hardware.
Strong 5 barrel hinges.
Tapered lens opening differs from the original Arnel shape. 
These are called 'Arnel Junior'. 
Original product sleeve included.
These are NOT RETURNABLE on account of the reproductions out there.
Make sure you measure your own glasses by referring to my measuring chart and compare your numbers to mine for fit.

These are VERY NARROW.
Between the hinges measures only 4 1/2".
They barely fit me and I have a narrow adult face.
I didn't include a photo because I looked like a moron in this 38-20 size.
The selfie is of me wearing the next size up  40-18 which is SMALL to begin with.

Temples are 5 1/2" long (140mm).
These are authentic frames from a retired Optician's inventory.
The temples are thin and meant to wrap around the back of the ear (5th photo), 
however as shown in the 3rd photo (depicting a black pair), they come curled from the manufacturer.
I adjusted them to a wearable position and your optician can adjust them further to a customized fit.
They're in excellent unused condition,  no yellowing to the clear part.
There's no shrinkage to the nylon.
This is my only pair.
