  • Looks to be just post-war, this is a very unusual frame.

    A seductive blush of a layer of burgundy on clear acetate

    decorates the upswept top half of the front frame, with

    the outer edges prettily scalloped. Intricate gold filigree

    metalwork decoration has been applied in two 'fan' shapes

    at each corner and then more filigree work has been set

    into the arms, the acetate cut back to put in these sections,

    so that the clear acetate behind shows off the detail. It

    also means that the arms are flush. There must be some

    gold content in this filigree work as it just gleams. This is

    the only frame like this we have ever seen. It seems to have

    stepped out of the pages of Vogue rather than an eyewear

    manufacturer's catalogue.
