Cabinet 13, Drawer 1
A mix of 60's to 80's, mostly French and mostly Lucite engraved frames.
For these rare craftsmen who know how to work with it there the material known in different sectors as Lucite, Perspex or Plexiglas is one of the most interesting for eyewear. It weighs nearly half of the weight of acetate, has almost perfect memory and the material itself has crystal clear optical qualities, to the point where something added to the back will be magnified and shown larger and very clearly in the front.
