Persol Ratti 801 Meflecto Yellow Tortoise

Shell Sunglasses

Vintage Persol Ratti 801 sunglasses features an incredible Italian yellow tortoise shell frame that has as much translucence as any frame we've ever seen here at the Vintage Sunglasses Shop. The mottling and colors of this 801 52 frame are so striking that we can guarantee they'll generate questions and compliments most every time you wear them. Persol 801 sunglasses have a very distinctive shape, with an angular design uniquely straight across the top and featuring the Persol Meflecto system with 4 separate cylinders on each ear stem to give unparalleled flex in the stems for a constantly perfect fit. The unisex Persol 801 frame was made at Persol's highest quality Ratti manufacturing facility and measures approximately 5.25" 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 trademark. You'll find the Persol supreme arrow on both ear stems near the hinges, and the inside of one stem is marked Persol 801/52 while the inside of the other stem is marked 142 78 Ratti Made in Italy. These are new old stock Persol Ratti 801 yellow tortoise shell sunglasses in mint, unworn condition, part of a great collection of vintage Persol sunglasses in Malibu, California.
