These are vintage American Optical "Liner" frames. Made from the 1940s on into the 1970s when the fashion for huge, gaudy eyewear swept all small-lensed glasses from the marketplace. This frame is of exceptional quality, having been designed by American Optical with the benefit of decades of experience, and at a time when plastic glasses were coming into vogue. In order for the all-metal Liner to succeed, it had to be good. Never a glamorous frame, the AO Liner wasn't cheap either. It stands with certain other icons of twentieth-century design, Levi's jeans, Converse All Stars, etc. --highly regarded as superior in quality and timeless in design.


The lens size of this frame, engraved on the underside of the left hinge is 48. By the left nosepad is the indication of the bridge size: 22. The temples say "American Optical 1-10 12KGF 6 1/4."

The non-prescription lenses in these sunglasses are in excellent condition. Ready to wear!
