1950s Aluminum Cat Eye Glasses in Faux Snakeskin Case
This is a fun vintage pair of cats eye glasses from the 1950s era. They are in their original case, which is faux snake skin and silver tone trim. The glasses are aluminum with etched and black ornate decoration on the top of the frames and are marked 4 1/4 Alum on the inside of the arms. The lenses are bifocal. Overall condition is good, but there is some wear to the black trim, mainly on the inside. The plastic arm covers and nose rests have discolored over the years and will probably need to be replaced. Otherwise, they are still strong. The case also has wear, but holds them well and opens and closes fine. The front of the frame is just over 5 inches wide and the arms are about 4.25 inches long form the hinge to the part where it dips to go over the ear.
