These classic gold round Windsor eyeglasses are brand new, mint condition and ready for prescription lenses or sunglasses. The arms are marked ''FRAME MADE IN ENGLAND ALGHA CE'' and the glasses are otherwise unmarked. The finish is 14 karat gold.
This is a newly minted frame made in England by Algha Works, a wonderful manufacturer. You may know them by their Savile Row eyewear, a famous line seen in movies, on movie stars, rock stars and even worn by the Queen. Algha Works has been in the eyeglass business since the 1930s with roots back to the 1920s. They still make frames using many of the same tools and techniques, these frames included! These have the traditional Windsor bridge, smooth and comfortable, a nice extension in the hinges and round rims, great frames!
Wire rims are flexible, so lenses can be made to a variety of shapes for this frame. This style is worn round, but can also be worn with nearly round lenses or other shapes. Temples are measured their full length, hinge to tip, as though they were straightened out. Why? Because they're adjustable, so measurements to the bend vary. Lens and bridge measurements are from lens edge to lens edge. Hinge to hinge is measured from screw to screw.
These frames have two temple options, the 170 mm cables or the 145 skull temples.
I'm thorough about condition so there are no surprises and your glasses will be thoroughly inspected before shipment. They make great everyday glasses or some very cool sunglasses.
Cable temple covers to fit these frames can be found here (1.5 heat shrink).
If you have any questions about this pair of glasses or anything else, please don't hesitate to contact me. I try to answer all questions promptly.
Thanks for visiting the Attic!
