1960s Flip Up Lens Sunglasses

Product Details

Terrific green sunglasses with a cool design. Very narrow lenses with flip up shade. When flipped up they have a cats eye silhouette. A similar pair are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art's fashion collection. Has a steam punk or Hippy vibe but I think they are actually late 50s early 60s Japanese shades called "Bikini's". The unique marbelled white plastic case is really cool and says they are made in the USA. I suspect only the case was made here. The size is small so if you have a 'big head' these may not fit. Excellent condition.
