Vintage Oversize 1980s Glasses with Imitation Tortoise Shell Look – Titmus


This item is sold. Price is shown for reference only.

Big, oversize, 1980s glasses with a plastic, imitation, tortoise shell look frame. Titmus brand. The lenses are prescription, bifocals, and are scratched, so they will absolutely have to be changed.

The tortoise shell look is not very distinctive. Actually more color variations than deliberate imitation, but still has the look.

Each lens is 2″ x 2″ with the total width across the face 4-7/8″. The arms sit low on the frame. Such a popular look in the ’80s. Each arm is about 5-1/4″ long. Titmus is written on the inside of the arms.

There are a couple of rough spots on the bottom edges, not bad, that can probably be polished out when the lenses are replaced. The arms are unlevel a bit. I have not worked with them to get them even.
