40s-50s-60s eyewear (and before) are completely different from the modern quality, they are real HAND-MADE, assembly by skilled labor with the materials of those years and with their era's knowledge.
Don't expect they are in the same quality and detailed 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 collectible.

Please note: these are glasses from many years ago, sold with "collector's" value.
If you intend to use them, use great caution to avoid unexpected breakages.
However, we do not recommend the use, rare pieces to collect as "history of eyewear".
