    I dug these sunglasses out of a giant bin of used frames - 5 for $10. I love their retro styling, greenish lenses, and wide, sturdy frame, though I'd really like to know exactly who made them and if they are indeed from the 1960s.

    There are no markings on them anywhere, but they have a distinctive joint/hinge at their corners connected with a long screw (almost 1").

    Does anyone have a guess as to the maker or era? Thanks!

      I'm with stefdesign on these as to the '50s . I remember my mother with a pair like these.. I can see her now... a pink chiffon scarf covering her hair and tied under her chin riding in the convertible. Talk about bringing back memories! Sorry I don't have any info on maker, but I do love them. Thanks for sharing.

      thanks chinablue - the older the better in my book! Love that image of your mother as well: I can totally picture it. :)

      Hi hunter, Nice Shades. Do these feel heavy when you wear them, like glass lenses?
    9. Hunter Hunter, 11 years ago
      Thanks Tom -I haven't worn them in months - I'll try this weekend and let ya know!

      How are these debonair sun specs treating you? I'm still weighed, measured, and found wanting how they fit. ? LoL =^}

      heh, they're a little short in the arms (maybe I have a long head?) but they do the job. I love the greenish lens tinting.
