A very nice period piece - A classic frame

A beautifully styled 1980s frame.

Translucent red acetate.

Michael, the name given to this design, refers to A. Oliver Goldsmith’s childhood friend. Goldsmith designed it at a time when he was experimenting with the traditional ‘keyhole’, the arch of the glasses’ frame that covers the bridge of the nose. In the 1930s and 1940s, glasses usually featured a literal keyhole-shaped void. Here, Goldsmith has softened this shape, which helped make it a popular and wearable design. In addition, the frame features three chanier joints, which made adjustments easier because the joints were more flexible.
