In the mid-1970's, hand-painted and jeweled eyeglasses and sunglasses dominated the couture scene. These vintage 1975 reading glasses have a single jewel detail in the upper right corner. Both side of the frame front are hand painted and laminated in the corners. This kind of detailing is unheard of nowadays.
Revue Eyewear has been designing high fashion, high quality eyeglasses and sunglasses since the 1960's. George Adin is an icon in the eyewear industry, designing trend-setting styles worn by Paul Newman and many other celebrities over the years. Mr. Adin is known for an eclectic European style, influenced by Venetian decorative motifs. Frames are all made from the best-available materials of the time, and hand-made in Italy, France or Japan.
