Persol Ratti Brevett Cat Eye Sunglasses
Vintage Persol Ratti Brevett sunglasses c 1950s / early 1960s are a unique Persol interpretation of the cat eye sunglasses shape but with that great Italian flair and quality. Persol Brevett sunglasses have the distinctive Persol silver arrow design at the temples and hinges, and note the ripple effect on the ear stems that is the kind of design detail that's both eye catching and difficult to manufacture. The rich color is a cross between a dark brown and tortoise shell, rather unique in shading and elegantly styled in the Persol Brevett frame. These Persol Brevett sunglasses were made in the Ratti manufacturing center which represents Persol's highest quality production. The Persol name is derived from "per il sole" which in Italian means "for the sun." Formed in 1917 by Giuseppe Ratti, Persol originally catered to pilots and sports drivers and is famous worldwide for its stylish and durable sunglasses. The brevett frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple, and the brown mineral glass lenses measure approximately 2.0" x 1.25" at the widest points. The inside of one ear stem is impressed Persol while the inside of the other stem is impressed brevett and Ratti.
