  • When it came to the exquisitely decorated

    frames, the best always hailed from France.

    This pair from the early 1960's when wrapping

    the sides was fashionable, it has been carved

    with a bird and floral design which at first glance

    is easily missed, but the arms have a bird with

    diamanté tail feathers and there is another

    bird on the wrapped sides with the same tail

    but with a jewelled eye and breast. The carving

    - all done by hand - is very delicate and filled

    with a gold paint. Very glamorous and the mineral

    glass lenses are uv protective too. NB: very

    slight nick on top of frame on left side, just

    seen in big close-up, hence the lower rating

    to 'good'.
