Cobra was an Austrian brand and they made a number of beautiful glasses during the 1980's, some with a touch of Dior design to them. This pair was acquired in Switzerland during a week with miserable weather. Nothing doing up there on the mountains but one can always descend into the valleys and see if there are any glasses of interest.... The first owner of these Cobra glasses must have been a lady in her late forties who got tired of searching for her readers all the time. So much handier to wear a pair of progressives, even when they are not necessary for looking in the distance. Jennifer was not bothered by the progressive lenses - she simply used the upper section with its minimal prescription. All the glasses did was making everything a little bit crisper.
