Authentic true vintage cat eyes dating back from the 1950s and early 60s. New old stock, never been worn, in pristine condition. They don’t make eyeglasses like these nowadays. Made from thick heavy duty cellulose acetate, sparkly colorful rhinestones set by hand, 5-7 barrel hinges with high nickel content means that they rarely will ever break. Many of these cat eye frames are unmarked, however were made in Moret France. They don’t make quality frames like this today. Wear a true piece of eyewear history that marked an era of the new up and coming eyewear fashion for women Please Note Many of these frames will run smaller than modern day frames. When trying on the frame for the first time, if it feels small or slightly lopsided, please do not worry. If the temples feel small, they can easily be expanded to rest on your ears better. This is normal for most plastic vintage frames over 20 years old. This is not cheaply made, nor defective. When plastic frames sit around for many years with out lenses the temples will slightly change shape. This is easily and inexpensively correctable by your optician by simply applying heat to the temples and adjusting them for you. If you let us fit your frame with lenses, we will also adjust the temples for you as best as possible, but since you will not physically be present, you still may need to take the frame to your local optician for more exact adjustments to the temples. We are flexible and will work with you on a case per case basis. The item “Authentic Vintage Medium Fit 1950s/60s Cat Eye Eyeglass Frame Brown (CTE-26)” is in sale since Sunday, January 11, 2015.
