Pearle is a well known opticians chain in Europe and they also made glasses themselves but not often. The pair shown here by Maria has a prescription for very mild long sight and I wonder if the glasses were used all that much by their first owner. You can tell the slight + prescription by the tilted image of the cement in the wall through the lens. The size of the frame is definitely 1980's but the marble structure of the frame only came en vogue at the very end of the decade after the arrival of retro frames. So my educated guess is that these glasses were made around 1988 / 1989.
