1950s Bausch & Lomb Women's Cat Eye Glasses Sunglasses Floral Deco Cat's Meow
Circa 1950s adult size Bausch & Lomb Women's Cat Eye Glasses Sunglasses Floral Deco "Cat's Meow" style. Lettering on the inside of both temple arms reads: " Bausch & Lomb 5-1/2 " see photos 9 & 10. 5-1/2 across at the outer ends of the frame tips. 5-5/8 (143 mm) approximate temple arm length. Frames - unknown type of plastic. Lens - Glass, medium tinted, prescription lenses - see more on this below for details TO CONVERT TO SUNGLASSES. Photo #4 is not a photo-shopped image, is a snapshot of our 35 year old daughter wearing these vintage glasses. The frames of these glasses are in great condition overall, everything tight & snug including the hinges as they should be when they where new - very solid construction frames. The front view side of these frames look great! On the inside surfaces (that touch the face/head) there is very light surface wear in the gloss of the plastic from use - such as the inside surface of the nose bridge & inside surfaces of the arms - but you will not be disappointed, these are a great looking & solid pair of vintage Bausch & Lomb frames! The prescription tinted glass lenses are virtually pristine, BUT they are prescription lenses that would need replaced if planning on wearing. There does not seem to be any mechanical way of removing these glass lenses from the frame such as loosening a screw, but I'm pretty sure I know how the the lenses are put in or out of the frames - warm up the glasses by submerging them in very hot water for a few minutes, then the glass lenses will pop out when pushed. Then you you have the lenses in-hand to take to your eye glass store to produce new ones for tented sunglasses lens or for prescription clear lenses, or tinted prescription lenses. When putting the lenses back in, warm the plastic up again and pop them in place. This is my best guess, check with an expert on this.
And better yet, take the whole thing to your eye glasses store and have them do it. See the supplied photos for the best part of this description!
