Vintage 1950s Brevete Celluloid Cat Eye Folding Rhinestone Sunglasses With Matching Chain
Vintage 1950s Brevete folding cat eye folding sunglasses were produced in only very small quantities, a midcentury engineering marvel of fashion design that also features a matching celluloid chain. You'll be the belle of the ball if you're seen in these rhinestone studded rich tortoise shell celluloid sunglasses with a translucence that instantly tells you they date to the 1950s. The nose bridge is in reality a round rhinestone decorated pivot that allows the ear stems to fold down across the front frame, and this design worked perfectly with the celluloid chain to let them hang flat around your neck when not wearing them. When extended, the midcentury celluloid frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple, and the light green lenses measure approximately 1.75" x 1.25" at the widest points. The inside of one stem is marked Brevete SDGD while the other stem is impressed Made in France. Both frame and matching celluloid chain are in excellent condition save for one missing rhinestone on the round center hinge which can be easily replaced, part of a great collection of mid 20th century French women's eyewear in London, England.
