  • Although Anglo-American are still going - since

    1881 - this pair made a little over a century

    later. Looks to be mid-1980's and is typical of

    the retro style they always liked to do, this pair

    a take on an American 40's frame, complete with

    an old fashioned hinge that is pinned with plaques

    both front and sides. The name Perimetric refers

    to this old shape of frame: this style has a eye shape

    which was oval at the top and round underneath.

    Anglo-American designs are featured in the

    collector's book Eyeglass Retrospective (Schiffer)

    and are on display in the BOA Museum, London.
