Chameleon

RS1017

  • Chameleon is a super rare and original 1950's interchangeable brow supra frame. The frame comes with six pairs of rubber brow inserts; maroon, cerise marble, mint marble, aqua marble, yellow marble and blue marble. The inserts can be pressed into the brow groove and pushed out to change with the metal instrument provided via a hole at the back of the frame. This is accessible when the temple sides are folded shut. The cat eye shape is striking, the temple sides have a gentle curve. The frame is in excellent condition with sign of gentle wear. The frame is currently fitted with prescription lenses which will need to be changed to suit, as sunglasses or spectacles lenses.  We would recommend using  Trivex lenses for supra frames, as this super tough material prevents the lenses from chipping, prolonging the life of your new vintage spectacles. Due to our high level of glazing expertise with original vintage frames,  we do recommend that we supply the lenses for you on this frame. 

  • All spectacles supplied with a brand new spectacle case and a Retro Spectacle microfibre cleaning cloth.

  • Lens Width: 50mm
    Lens Depth: 36mm

Size Guide and Frame Measurments


It is important when purchasing your vintage glasses that the size of the frame is taken into consideration. All our frames have the measurements displayed for each frame on a tab called Measurements. The measurements displayed are the Lens Width, Bridge Width, Temple Length, Temple Width & Lens Depth. The measurements provided indicate the size of your glasses and are all recorded in millimetres.

Lens Width is the distance across the lens measured from the bridge. This distance can be dependent on the style of the glasses chosen, for example round glasses will have a smaller lens width. People with high prescriptions are better to keep the lens width as small as possible, as the greater the lens width the thicker the lenses.

Lens Depth is the depth of the lens at the greatest point.  A frame needs a minimum Lens Depth of 28mm to accommodate varifocals. 

Bridge Width is the distance between the lenses which sits across your nose. The greater the bridge width the wider the bridge across the nose. 

Temple Length is the length of the side from the dowel point to the end tip. Its important the side length is long enough to sit over your ear. 

Temple Width is the width of the frame across the inside of the front of the frame from temple screw to screw. This indicates the width of the frame, and is a great measurement to compare to your existing spectacles.
