Long before I was an antique dealer, I managed the Accounting Dept. for "the worlds biggest optical lab".  To boot, most of my father's family were in the optical business.  Imagine my dismay when the lab's warehouse manager announced he was throwing away all the old Artcraft & Universal parts.   This was in the late 1980's, when our lab filled a rare request to replace old style temples or nose guards or what have you.  I convinced the warehouse manager to give the obsolete inventory stock to me.  I've kept it boxed up and safe since then, rediscovered in quarantine cleaning.  So, time to let go.  All of the stock I am listing has never been used before -- truly new old stock.  Some are in original packaging, which is worse for wear.   The last photo shows some of the frame bases I am selling.  This EBay item is for the frame shown in all but the last photo.  See my "other items" if interested in other frame bases -- subject to prior sale.  Packaging indicates this is #500 Chassis, "Charmbrow", 42 x 22 (43.5 x 34.5) by Universal Optical Company Inc.  Nose bridge is marked:42 / 22 / [Universal hallmark] 1/30 10K R.G.P.  Ready to receive your prescription.  Nose pads attached.   Frame measures 4.5" wide across top. The item listed is being sold as is, as pictured and as described to the best of my knowledge.  If you have a question on an item prior to purchase, please ask. Remember, when buying vintage expect imperfections as these items have a history and have been in the possession of others. I try to list EVERY flaw which would be commented on something in an antique or vintage condition – this does not mean all imperfections resulting from normal wear & use require comment. My goal is to have no rude surprises upon receipt. Please see "About me" for the contract  legalese.  Boring, I know, but essential. Always happy to pass through discounts on combined shipping.
