Persol Ratti 649 VL Light Havana Mirrored


Vintage Persol Ratti 649 VL Light Havana sunglasses feature very rare and early Persol silver mirror mineral glasses lenses, a color combination and style that's got unmistakable eye catching class. These lenses are highly reflective, a silver flash mirror coating applied to the exterior of the brown mineral glass lens base, and the full mirror lenses were made in only small quantities during the gold era of Persol's Ratti production in Turin, Italy. The unisex Persol 649 VL frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple, and the Persol mirrored lenses measure approximately 1.875" x 1.675" at the widest points with both lenses laser etched with the round Persol trademark. You'll find the always recognizable Persol metal arrow on both ear stems near the hinges along with the patented Persol Meflecto system, a set of tubes and metal cylinders inserted therein that provide unprecedented flexibility to the stems to conform to the contours of the face. The inside of one stem is impressed 649 VL and marked Persol Meflecto Ratti while the inside of the other stem is marked Made in Italy 48 - 70, new old stock in unworn condition from a fine collection of rare European designer sunglasses owned by a well known EU sports executive and customer of Vintage Designer Sunglasses.
