Vintage GASPARI GOLD EYE GLASSES Engraved Cable Temples

Vintage GASPARI GOLD EYE GLASSES Engraved Cable Temples - eBay (item 310016413807 end time Jan-27-08 17:44:29 PST)

This pair of vintage gold eyeglasses has an engraved design on the temples. They're marked on both temples with "Gaspari 1/10 12 K GF." The bridge says, "1/10 12 K GF Gaspari, 20 G."

The frame goes across the tops of the lenses only, not the sides and bottoms. Screws through holes in the lenses attach them to the frame and nose pads.

The total width of the frame is 117 mm, including the temple hinges. The frame takes lenses 39 mm high and 44 mm wide. The distance between the lenses at the bridge is 22 mm. The cable temples measure 120 mm long. The frame, nose pads and temples are in great condition.

The black faux-leather-covered metal glasses case looks pretty good outside, great inside.

The coolest thing about this style of eye glass temples is the way the glasses stay on your head even if you turn upside-down. If you're sick of your spectacles falling off, these are for you.
