other info
  • US Optical were a frame manufacturing company which set

    up in the late 1950s just across the East river from mid-town

    Manhattan in Long Island City. This is a typical combination

    frame from that period, we reckon made in the early 1960s.

    The hoods of the frame are a grey briar whilst the chassis is

    in white gold, the bridge being given decorative incisions to

    match their trademark plaques. Good quality frame built to last

    and in a decent size - difficult to find these days. In fantastic

    condition, looks hardly worn.
