Cabinet 11, Drawer 2
A collection of all US made NOS Gaspari eyewear from the 50's and 60's. Not enough is known about Gaspari. We can see that he was Italian born from some early patent applications. In the early 50's they produced a lot of the same rococo over the top small ladies GF frames that a number of companies were making. However, from the later 50's and into the 60's there was a remarkable change in what came from Gaspari and these are rarely seen. They specialized in aluminum and gold fill and they were virtually unparalleled in quality and complexity for that era.
