Very Vintage, yet Futuristic Celluloid Sunglasses
As a collector, sometimes if something was cool I’d pick up more than one.
Such was the case with these French celluloid sunglasses from the 1930s.
Both frame front and lens are one piece with temples cut from the same material, presaging the polycarbonate wraps of 30 to 40 years later.
Funny thing is they didn’t look nearly as out of place in the 1930s as one might expect:
The only problem was they warped and scratched very easily. Polycarbonate would, indeed, be a welcome step forward.
