No indicators on this frame to tell us from where it hails.
It looks to have been made from the 1930s and is a heavy
frame no doubt made for men. Centre joints and wide
lugs allow for a wide library temple that doesn't taper.
Reminiscent of a frame worn by Le Corbusier, but with
perhaps a lightly higher bridge. Pinned front and sides
with a 2 : 3 pin arrangement. The nose-pads needed
replacing which we had done professionally, otherwise
they are in pristine, original condition.
