Vintage 1940s Aviator Sunglasses with Metal Rims in Mint Condition

Green,Gold,Vintage,Metal,

These stunning old sunglasses are in mint condition,with the original lens paperwork inside. Non prescription "polished plate glass" without a scratch on them, approved by the Bureau of Standards in Washington, DC,touting the scientific benefits of these sunglasses.The Lowres company was in existence as early as the 1900s,and the Bureau of Standards changed names in the 1980s,but I am dating these to the 1930s or 1940s based on the case design,paperwork, color of glass and style of plastic across the top. I have squinted at the marks across the bridge and on each arm for hours, trying to make out the first two symbols without much luck.What I can clearly see is 1/10 12K GF,which is 12 karat gold filled. I polished them after taking the picturesand they are simply gleaming bright. They are small in size and fit a narrow head,as you can see by my amazing model, but are clearly made for an adult.They measure 5 inches exactly across the frontfrom tip of the hinge to tip of hinge.The lenses are 2 inches wide and 1.75 inches tall.I believe this is the original case.Shipping price includes insurance. Have any questions? Contact the shop owner.
