Mirjam 110

Mirjam generally prefers thinner, more subtle frames but she kindly made an exception for these large Rodenstock glasses. Throughout the 1960's and 1970's, Rodenstock had the nice habit to give a girl's name to each new series of frames. In the 1980's this was replaced by two frame categories (stamped L and J, respectively), each of which had serial numbers. The L stood for Lady, aiming at mature buyers. The J stood for Junge Linie (or in English, Young Look). The glasses shown here by Mirjam would have deserved a more appropriate name: SL (for Steamed Lenses) so we decided to try another pair of glasses :). Bye bye, Rodenstock....
