Brilliant pair of fine hornrims from Anglo American Optical, made in England and very well done throughout. Smooth bridge, broad bridge tabs, hinge plates with real rivets, nice, snug five barrel hinges, smooth temples and graceful lines from bridge to tip. This is their very classic tortoise color, very rich and warm. Great frames, ready to go!

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 based on maker and adjustment. 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. I'm thorough about condition so there are no surprises and your frames will be nice ones, thoroughly inspected before leaving the Attic. They'll make great everyday glasses or some very cool sunglasses.
