Authentic Vintage 1950s to 1960s sunglasses unbranded.
Real sturdy acetate material covered with a "patina" in black lucite tone....the same methodology used for "painting a car".
The corners and temples have nestled silver stars.
Sunny original lenses are in gray tone, with a pale shade going to azure.
The original sunny lenses, when fixed on face, seems to have a "low diopters", but tested with Optical equipment, it's only a reverberation due to glasses lenses thickness and the inclination of them (lenses going to flat lenses, so very innovative for those years).
Anyway, if this reverberation is too incisive fro you, lenses can be replaced by any Optician with your needed lenses.

40s-50s-60s eyewear (and before) are completely different from the modern quality, they are real HAND-MADE, assembly by skilled labour with the materials of those years and with their era's knowledge.
Don't expect they are in the same quality and detailled as modern eyewear or just as 70s-80s and 90s glasses, but they should be love for their Vintage qualities, rarity, and cause they have pass more decades to be here, still in Lovely condition and perfectly usable and collectable.
