This is a shape for women's sunglasses that started in the

late 1940s and continued well into the 1950s, so it is difficult

to prescisely date these, but we're in the ballpark. It offers

some nice details: the upswept tops extending to shaped lugs;

the mid-tint lenses and best of all, the arms are pinched part

way down. The front is made from a solid acetate while the sides

are a crystal layer under black, offering a peek at the wire

cores which were obviously worth showing off back then. The

lenses give good uv protection, so all round pretty good for

mid-century continental eyewear.
