This is a wonderful pair of Art Deco round framed eye glasses in their original case plus the clip on sunglasses that came with them. The frame is marked B&LSQ ART SHEL inside the nose bridge. The eye glasses have gold filled metal frames and dark round frames around the lens. The lens have a slight magnification and must have been prescribed as reading glasses. The name of the optometrist is on the label inside the case and also printed on the cloth that came with the glasses as follows: Dr. W. R. Carper Optometrist 3 West Church Ave. Roanoke, VA. The case is a beauty in pebbled gray green with a high Deco design on the lid. The clip on sun glasses have dark frames and amber tinted lens.
The glasses measure 4.25" from hinge to hinge. Each lens is 1.5" in diameter. The side ear wires are 4.125" long. The sun glasses measure 3.75" across. Each lens is 1.625" in diameter.
Condition is good. The interior of the case does have spotting though.
When I see these glasses I can't help but think of the look of the Great Gatsby.
