What a brilliant frame! This is the model 180E from Anglo American Optical, very well-made and very classy, made in England. It's a newly minted frame, available in a several tortoise colors and even in clear, but the frames in the photos are classic black. Thick rims and temples, triple-dot rivets, generous extensions on the hornrims and all connected with fantastic curves. These really are brilliant eyeglasses, ready for years of fashionable service.

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.

I'm occasionally asked if these are authentic Anglo American frames and yes, they really are. They carry the manufacturer warranty. All frames are thoroughly inspected before leaving the Attic. I'm thorough about condition so there are no surprises and these glasses are in mint condition. They'll make great everyday glasses or some very cool sunglasses.
