Bausch & Lomb Type II Rectangles Kalichrome Sunglasses
Vintage Bausch & Lomb Type II Rectangles Kalichrome sunglasses feature the amazing properties of the Bausch & Lomb Kalichrome C lens paired with this early B&L Type II Art Deco inspired nickel plate which produces a silver lustre. The Type II frame is extremely strong and durable, most typically used as safety glasses but then adopted by B&L as the frame of choice for their very first production of Kalichrome lenses for hunters and shooters. The precision ground and highly polished glass B&L Kalichrome C lens is a yellow high contrast lens free of waves or any other defects that could distort vision or cause eye strain. B&L Kalichrome lenses are famous worldwide for their ability to intensify and enhance the visual spectrum, and sporting enthusiasts and pilots everywhere swear by these glasses when in difficult visibility situations. The unisex Bausch & Lomb nickel plated Type II Rectangles frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple, and the Kalichrome lenses measure approximately 1.875" x 1.675" at the widest points. The inside of both stems is impressed 5 3/4 Safety B&L and the rear of the nose bridge is impressed 22 B&L 52 Safety. Rare.
