Vintage American Optical Ful-Vue "Liner" frames. This classic frame was made from the 1940s on into the 1970s when the fashion for huge gaudy plastic eyewear swept everything else from the marketplace.

This frame is of exceptional quality, having been designed by American Optical with the benefit of decades of experience with metal frames. AO developed this frame at a time when plastic-framed glasses were first coming into vogue and knew that 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 Star Chuck Taylors, and a few other classics— highly regarded as superior in quality and timeless in design.


These frames appear to be new but they aren't quite. The temples have a bend to them near the hinges indicating that they have been fitted to someone at some time. The frames are marked on the bridge "Ful-Vue AO 12KGF." The bridge size is indicated near one of the nosepads as "22." Lens size is indicated as "48." The temples both say "American Optical 1-10 12K GF 6-1/2." The hinges are snug and operate smoothly. There are no lenses in these glasses.

NOTE: One of the nosepads is missing. The mount is there, as you can see in the pictures, but the actual pad is gone on the one side.
