The seller of these way cool sunglasses (Vintage Luxury) doesn’t know who designed or manufactured them, and a fairly thorough web search yielded no results. All that is known for sure is that they’re from the 1950s and are very rare and unique.
Not only do they look like wow when worn, they also collapse/fold into rather artistic shapes making for a great conversation piece. These one-of-a-kinders are up for grabs at 1stdibs marketplace. If you have an extra $225 to spare, you can find them here.
Just imagine them on a transparent being from another dimension.
If you have any info about these please feel free to mention it in the comments.

[off topic – Scout, I see in my comments that you are using the new emoticon characters. I tried to save that page from WP, but it took over my photo gallery. I wrote Support, but received no answer. How , if I may ask, are you able to use them?
feel free to delete this if you wish]
Oh! I use the Firefox ‘special characters’ list. — Go to ‘edit’ on the main menu, choose ‘special characters,’ and a list will open up. Choose what ya want. The emoticon will show up where you last left the cursor in the comment field.
If you don’t use Firefox I think all browsers should have a similar thing. Hope this helps – I probably made it sound more complicated than it is. *heh*
I’ll give it a shot – thank you.
