CLEEVIS SUN SPECTACLES


Here's a pair of really whacky sun specs. The firm that made them went into administration in 1939 so they must pre date that! They have no glass - just slits in the black plastic lenses. They would have been influenced by the Eskimos - who used this idea to protet from the glare of the sun. They are made of celluloid - to look like tortoishell. Price £88. Ref: 2127 B84/38. See full description on my web site and see me on Facebook - Gillian Horsup Vintage Jewellery.Do visit my shop at Grays Antiques - near Bond Street.
