  • An exceptional American Optical frame from the early

    1930's, especially being in white gold. The familiar mark

    is the 1/10 12kgf stamp used by AO: a small circle

    within the 3-sided square. 'Ful-Vue' refers to an AO

    innovation, the placing of the joints and arms up high at

    the sides, for a fuller, unobstructed view. The eye-shape

    is a glorious octagon and those angles are echoed in the

    crested bridge. The decoration of stylised diamonds,

    stars and lines gives this pair the ultimate Art Deco touch.

    Luxury like this would have been in the reach of very few

    Americans in the 1930's and this rare piece is in wonderful

    and wearable condition. We have had it fitted with plano

    MAR coated lenses, so it could be worn now, just as an

    incredible accessory. Or it could be glazed with prescription

    or tinted lenses. As it is a small frame, it would suit men

    or women - but please do check sizes before you buy.
