A fabulous and rare 1930s pair of sun shades, with round frames in tortoiseshell effect celluloid, and deep green perspex half-lenses sitting proud of the eye surrounds to shade the eye from overhead light without covering vision. Lovely little old hinges!

Front width across lens frame 4 4/8”

Total front width including hinge bar 5 1/8”

5” between arms at hinges

5 2/8” between arms at ear curves, pulling out to 7”

6” arm length

Great condition, a little adhesive residue along side lines of the perspex which is original to manufacture, one or two light scratches to perspex which doesn’t affect vision and aren’t very noticeable. A thin space between lenses and frame in places, again original and caught in place elsewhere so no wobbling etc. One arm sits a little higher than the other
