Persol Ratti PP505 Tortoise Shell


Vintage Persol Ratti PP505 sunglasses feature a beautiful translucent tortoise shell that has the shape of vintage Ray-Ban Chromax styles but with a lot more design flair, and there's no equivalent for the style and optical quality of vintage Persol brown mineral glass lenses. Persol PP505 sunglasses stand out for a number of reasons including the top frame which goes straight across, then dipping down and more rounded across the bottom of the lenses to make a nice contrast of angles and curves. These Persol Ratti PP505 sunglasses incorporate the Meflecto system unique to vintage Persols, 4 metal pins which are inserted vertically into the ear stems and provide unparalleled flexibility in the stems for perfect comfort and fit. The unisex Persol PP505 sunglasses frame measures approximately 5.675" temple to temple, and the lenses measure approximately 2.125" x 1.5" at the widest points with both lenses laser etched with the round Persol mark in the upper outside corners. You'll find the distinctive silver metal Persol arrow on the exterior of both ear stems wrapping around the temple, and the inside of one stem is marked Persol PP505 58 [] 18 while the inside of the other stem is marked 142 96 Ratti Made in Italy. These are new old stock Persol Ratti PP505 sunglasses in mint, unworn condition, part of a fine collection of vintage Persol sunglasses in Milan, Italy.
