Very unusual vintage Black and Gray Cat Eyeglasses by Witney. The material used for over the brow and down the temples (arms) has an organic, mother of pearl quality to it. I have never seen a pair like this one, really rare and a must for the collector. There are no cracks in the frame and the frame functions very well. Over the nose and under the eye is silver. The original lens has been removed. This is a very clean pair.



Before you purchase remember the following, true vintage frames are smaller than modern frames, consider this and know your eyeglass frame preferred measurements before you make your purchase. If you consider installing your own lens, go to an optical company that is familiar with vintage frames - they can be fragile. As with any pair of new eyeglasses, you will want to have them adjusted to fit your nose and ears. HT20
