125,000.00

From the mid-20th century glasses became a fashion accessory in their own right, a trend actively pursued by the British optical firm Oliver Goldsmith, who created deliberately stylish and occasionally outlandish frames for the likes of Princess Grace of Monaco and Diana Princess of Wales.

Description

Frame-UP Shoot

 

The firm was founded in 1926 by Philip Oliver Goldsmith (1890 – 1947) who started out as a traveling salesman for the well-known optical firm Raphaels in the 1920s. Catering to the higher end of the market, he hired a group of craftspeople to make real tortoiseshell frames by hand in his own London workshop, based at 60 Poland Street. At the time, tortoise species had not yet been declared endangered, and their shells were a very popular material for glasses.
