Vintage folding clip on sunglasses by American Optical  in a gray tint or shade of glass with snap shut leather case.

These belonged to my father and are circa 1940s to 50s.   I believe they were used very little after the 1950s and resided in one of his dresser drawers for the last 50 plus years.

Marked with AO on each lens although this is difficult to see in the photos.

Each lens is 1 7/8 inches across and about 1 3/4 inches in height.


Some discoloration on metal frame.    I have cleaned them but buyer may wish to do more cleaning as desired.

Leather case snaps closed tightly.  Case shows scuffing and is worn.

As these are a vintage item and more than 60 years old, some signs of use or wear are normal.

I mention anything I see but may unintentionally overlook something.   Please see photos as they are an important part of the description.

Please email with any questions.
