Collection: Cat Eye Glasses

Below you will find our selection of Vintage Cat Eye Glasses. When we started out we focused mainly on older antique eyeglasses, we were mainly in to metal gold and silver eyeglass frames. We would sometimes buy frames in lots and they would contain some older vintage eyeglass frames together with some newer plastic vintage cat eye glasses. Not being educated in the field we were unfamiliar with them and would throw the cat eye glasses into boxes and store them away and focus on the old eyeglass frames. As years went by we realized that vintage cat eye glasses were selling elsewhere and we went back to the closet to pull out the vintage cateye's. Slowly this started becoming our main focus even as we continued selling the older antique frames.

Vintage Cat Eye Glasses in the 1950's and 1960's generally came in sizes 42 to 48, which is the size in millimeters of the width of the frames. They also made child sizes, generally 36-40mm but that is something we never really focused on. Size 42 today is often considered a child size as they fit really small. Most women find size 44 and 46 to work for them these days.

The other measurement we give for vintage cat eye glasses is the internal width, the measurement between both hinges in the inside. For other older frames we generally measure frames by the external width but with vintage cat eye glasses we find that the varying differences in the thickness of the temples can cause this to be an inaccurate way of determining size and therefore find it more helpful to measure the space between temples of vintage cat eye glasses. The width in inches generally ranges between 4 3/8 inches to 5 1/4 inches, with most medium sized frames being between 4 3/4 to 5 inches wide.

The temple length for vintage cat eye glasses generally ran between 5 1/4 inches to 5 3/4 inches, with most cat eye frames being 5 1/4 and 5 1/2.
