collection of vintage 1950s spectacle frames

We picked up an interesting little ‘job lot’ last week – vintage spectacles, which is a new one for us.

They’re unused frames – still with original opticians labels from AJH Blackham, Drake Street, Rochdale – ready to fit your lenses of choice.

They date from the very late 40s/early 50s and have distinctive styling from the period. They must have been the latest thing when they were put on display.

We’ll put them in our webshop soon – or perhaps our eBay shop might be the best place to sell them. Get in touch if you’re a big vintage fashion fan and are interested in these. It’s not everyday that unused, vintage accessories turn up so we’d like to give our regular readers first dibs.
