help identify vintage glasses, Ray Ban?

Postby keary367 on Fri Mar 04, 2011 10:57 pm

A friend got these sunglasses out of a storage unit that was storing items from the 1940's. The case is Bausch & Lomb but I am wondering about the glasses . I have read that very early makes of Ray Bans didn't put their logo on lenses or frames, only writing on these is across the bridge on top it says "optonic". They are heavy well made. Lenses are green and they are small . Lenses up and down measure 45 mm and across 50mm. I have a pic of my 8 year old son wearing them to show the size. Also the lenses are really unique shaped. Does anyone have any ideas?
Thank you

Thanks for the post. I was unable to find a model number for those. The only current model that I was able to locate that looks similar is the Ray-Ban Junior Sunglasses RJ9508S for Kids. That shape that your son is wearing is very unique, very retro.

Anyone else?
