Antique Real Handmade Tortoiseshell Natural Eyeglasses Frames Spectacles France
Let the god damn photos speak for themselves. Handmade in France in the 1940s, natural real composite hawksbill tortoiseshell and sterling silver hinges. These glasses are typical of French tortoiseshell work, with a matte front piece and polished arms. The keyhole is another telltale detail of the French masterful artisanship. These glasses are the zenith of eyewear. Layers of different shades of tortoiseshell were literally melted into each other and then carved out by hand to create this beautiful assortment of hues and shades. When the sun hits these frames and you see the colors bursting through your heart begins to laugh from the beauty (literally). The way the arms thicken towards the middle and taper gently to the thinner edges shows how much attention was put into the details of these absolutely exquisite and unique frames. These glasses are completely handmade out of tortoiseshell and are 100% LEGAL TO OWN because they were crafted Pre-1973. They measure 5 3/8 across the temples. These are 100% natural tortoise so you NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THEM BREAKING! Tortoise is a natural material and can be molded and fused together with heat. Thus, many artisans in Japan specialize in repairing broken tortoiseshell glasses very very affordably. I can give you a whole history lesson on these things if you’d like.
