Sjoukje & daughter Battice 045
Lovely Battice posing to great effect in another of her favorite pairs. These glasses were a welcome find in Germany, some seven years ago. They clearly belong to the retro era but opticians in Germany had more variation in frames than their Dutch colleagues at the time. Also, I often noticed that German ladies were more inclined to experiment with eccentric frames than Dutch ladies. The Morie glasses were first bought by a lady in her forties and these were probably her first glasses with progressive lenses. The shape of the frame is rather unusual and the vivid colors of the eyebrow line make these glasses a real eye catcher. Small wonder that Battice - who does not need glasses at all - fell for the style. I like the dreamer expression here.
