  • Another gem from American frame makers May (see below

    for another). This is Cartagena, introduced in 1967 and

    described as, "...the nearly square look softened for smart

    femininity..."
    . This colourway was also new for May that year:

    Chic-Chek. It is made using a layer of coloured fabric under

    a layer of clear, this is in tones of brown and black and was

    the show-off pair for May as they led with it in that season's

    catalogue
    . Very rare, it is the only one we have seen and is

    in great condition. May pieces are now in museum collections

    (as at the MFA, Boston, USA).
