Ray-Ban 12k GF Tru Green 58mm Aviator Sunglasses
Vintage Ray-Ban 12k GF aviator sunglasses c 1950s - 1960s feature the early Bausch & Lomb Tru Green lenses in a 12k gold filled 58mm aviator frame. These are a real classic of early B&L Ray-Ban sunglasses, and the Tru Green lenses are a much lighter shade of green than the better known G-15 lenses which were to follow. These 12k gold filled Tru Green 58mm aviators are old, and while in excellent condition these are not going to be as shiny and new as later aviators made in the 1970s - 1990s but are much rarer and more collectible. They retain the original bakelite nose pads which are another sure sign of early 1950s - 1960s production. The unisex frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple, and the lenses measure approximately 2.125" x 1.875" at the widest points and pre-date the use of any marks on the lenses. The top of the nose bridge is marked Ray-Ban (another very early marking practice) while the bottom of the bridge is marked B&L 1/10 12k GF all impressed in the 12k gold plating. Rare.
