Another Waterlooplein find, these Flirt glasses
were among the very first acquisitions when I
started collecting glasses as a poor student.
The lenses are tinted and their glare is reduced
by choosing this angle for the picture.
Oval glasses were rare in the 1950's and 1960's.
These Flirt glasses mark the beginning of the golden
era of big glasses in all sorts of shapes and colours.
It's nice to see that bigger frames are about to get
popular again after two decades in which the choice
of frames was rather limited.
