1940 SHURON EYE GLASSES

Today I'm highlighting something I use everyday... my eyeglasses.
This is a vintage pair of Shuron Eyeglasses from around 1940. They're 12k gf but much better than something that's manufactured today. These are the glasses worn pretty much by everyone in the US during the late 30's up to the 50's.

they have excellent details and the curved earpieces that I really love. I had a pair of Windsor's before these (ones that just sit on your nose) but decided to get something "Newer" with nose pads...

Every time I get new lenses the eye guy always asks how much I paid for them since to buy something similar today would cost close to $500.00. I said $15 on ebay...
