Monique showing the position of the reading segments in these vintage bifocals by Preciosa. Some secretaries with 20/20 vision for long distance preferred using bifocals in those days and they were absolutely right. Preciosa was a Dutch brand, a family business that started its activities way back in 1936. They expanded their business internationally during the 1960's as there was a rapidly growing demand for glasses. They are still in business, under the name Frame Holland. This is the only pair of Preciosa glasses in my collection. The glasses were featured in at least half a dozen previous photo shoots, all done by models with perfect eyesight like Monique.
