1950s Ronsir by SHURON (USA) KlasikVintageEyewearKlasikVintageEyewear KlasikVintageEyewearKlasikVintageEyewearKlasikVintageEyewear


This is Shuron's famous Browline frame, later named the

Ronsir. You can see the earlier version here in the catalogue

we have from 1953. The only difference are the plaques or

shields on the front, by the late 50's when ours was made,

they changed from the trademark rectangle to the more

familiar arrowhead shape. Here is an ad from 1959 showing

our pair, now named Ronsir. A beautifully made combination

frame, the ad is actually announcing the new anodized

aluminum finishes. Ours is one of the 8 zyl pairs they mention,

called cordovan and it is in great condition. FYI: Shuron are

still going today - since 1865 - but they stopped making

these high gold content frames in the 1960's.
