  • AO's Gaymont was released in the mid-1950's and this is

    one of the earliest examples as it is more upswept than later

    models, seen here in a 1958 catalogue, when the shape

    changed to a slightly flatter style. This pair in a carnival

    colourway, with white stripes over the glittering red and gold

    checks. This is a layer over the dark red frame. The bridge

    is hand engraved and has the gold mark on the inside. This

    frame is in remarkable condition, looks never worn.
