Very early vintage Bausch & Lomb 12k gold filled cat eye sunglasses c 1950s have all the bells and whistles collectors and vintage fashion enthusiasts look for in the finest mid-century sunglasses. First, the B&L frame features elaborate metal scrollwork that forms the two ear stems, all 12k gold filled and so marked on the ear stem impressed in the metal. Second, check out the rhinestone and marcasite clusters at each temple, and of course you have the high quality B&L anti-glare green lenses to protect your eyes while you're looking fabulous. The frame measures approximately 5.0" temple to temple, and each lens measures approximately 1.875" x 1.375" at the widest points.

The intricacy of the scroll design ear stems, the elaborate rhinestone and marcasite flourishes at each temple, and innovative early Bausch & Lomb anti-glare glass lens technology combine to make these one very special pair of vintage sunglasses.
