These sunglasses were purchased by a local optician who was a friend of the family. I bought them from him around 12 years ago. I would like to know if they have any value. I have no case but the sunglasses are in good condition.
A friends family member who was a sunglasses supplief in a local town to me.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a nice pair of sunglasses. Such vintage designer accessories are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
Your Kieselstein sunglasses appears to be in good condition which is important when selling vintage designer accessories. They are made by a good quality brand but not one of the high-end very popular fashion brands like Chanel, Gucci or YSL that tend to obtain very high prices. There will most certainly be a market for your sunglasses however the estimate is in the lower region compared to the above mentioned French/Italian brands.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online vintage accessories auction, where I believe the sunglasses has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the Kieselstein sunglasses. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
