Persol Ratti 852 Meflecto Tortoise Shell


Vintage Persol Ratti 852 sunglasses feature a translucent orange tortoise shell frame and a top of the line 4 cylinder insert Meflecto system for ultimate flexibility and a perfect fit. The Meflecto system was patented in 1938 and made possible flexible acetate temple arms that let the frame mold itself to the shape of the wearer’s face, and even today is an unrivalled technological solution for comfort and stability of fit. The Meflecto system involves inserting two to four small cylinders into the acetate arm to give it flexibility, a craft manufacturing process exclusive to Persol. The unisex Persol 852 frame measures approximately 5.5" temple to temple, and the lenses measure approximately 1.875" x 1.375" at the widest points with both lenses laser etched with the round Persol trademark. You'll find the Persol supreme arrow in chrome on the exterior of both ear stems, and the inside of one stem is marked Persol 852 51 [] 22 while the inside of the other stem is marked 142 96 Ratti Made in Italy. These are new old stock Persol Ratti 852 sunglasses in mint, unworn condition, part of the collection of a well known European business executive and customer of Vintage Designer Sunglasses.
