Persol 714 Ratti Blond Tortoise Folding Sunglasses
1 Vintage Persol 714 folding sunglasses are an icon of modern sunglasses design and an engineering marvel, folding up to a size no larger than the two lenses resting against one another. These are original vintage Persol Ratti 714 folding sunglasses and not the modern "Steve McQueen" reproductions being marketed by Persol today. The blond tortoise shell frame is harder to find than darker tortoise versions of Persol 714s, and it looks great with the brown Persol mineral glass lenses. The sunglasses fold at the nose bridge and at the halfway points of both ear stems to fold, and as a final luxury you'll also find the "Meflecto" system of pins inserted into each ear stem to give them unparalleled flex and comfort. The unisex Persol 714 frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple, and the lenses measure approximately 2.0" x 1.75" at the widest points with both lenses laser etched with the round Persol logo. The nside of one ear stem is marked Made in Italy while the inside of the other stem is marked Persol Meflecto Ratti, part of the collection of a well known European sportsman and long time customer of the Vintage Sunglasses Shop..

2 Step up another level beyond our already unequaled vintage condition standard with new old stock Persol 714 folding sunglasses in near mint, unworn condition. While some of the printed marks have faded over the years and there is age wear to the included Persol folding sunglasses leather case, these Persol Ratti 714 blond tortoise sunglasses are as pristine as any example we've ever seen of this age so a rare opportunity.
