Simona 096

These vintage cat eye glasses by Essel are a fine example of what could be seen in the streets of my native Amsterdam just before the outbreak of Beatlemania in 1964. Most remarkable is the Rx of the lenses (+0.25). Even nowadays, clients need a lot of persuasion to get their optician to fit lenses for such an extremely prescription, let alone half a century ago. My guess is that the glasses were bought by a clever lady who really loved glasses.
