Persol Ratti 811 Folding Meflecto


Vintage Persol Meflecto Ratti 811 Folding sunglasses are one of the rarest of any vintage Persol sunglasses, a wonderful Italian blond tortoise shell frame with arguably the best folding technology in the world allowing them to collapse into a size no larger than the width of a single lens. Each ear stem folds down at the midpoint, then the ear stems close and the frame itself folds via the hinge at the center nose bridge. In addition to the advanced folding technology, Persol 811 sunglasses also feature the Persol Meflecto system that gives the ear stems unrivaled flexibility via the insertion of 2 small pins into each stem around which the stem can pivot. The unisex Persol Ratti 811 frame measures approximately 5.375" temple to temple, and the lenses measure approximately 2.0" x 1.675" at the widest points with both lenses laser etched with the round Persol trademark. The inside of one ear stem is marked Persol Meflecto Ratti and impressed with the model number 811. These are new old stock Persol Ratti 811 folding sunglasses in mint, unworn condition, part of the collection of a well known music producer and customer of Vintage Designer Sunglasses.
