Anglo American Eyewear can trace its roots right back to 1881, a thoroughly British brand that really took off following the formation of the NHS in 1948. It grew into a formidable family business with offices in London, Tokyo and New York. By the 1980s their marketing boasted that not only is each frame handled 75 times in 43 separate operations but it is also checked over 15 times. As a result, all Anglo American frames are built to last, with many frames having the highest quality Italian Mazzucchelli acetates.
All vintage sunglasses and vintage optical glasses sold by Ed & Sarna Vintage Eyewear are NOS (New Old Stock) – genuine unworn frames of times past. You will receive the actual frame pictured above so take a good look through all of our images and if you have any queries just let us know. To keep your purchase protected all of our frames are supplied with an Ed & Sarna branded lens cloth and case.
What our customers say about us
I have bought glasses with Ed and Sarna twice now and each time my experience with them was perfect!

I have been searching to replace my favorite pair of Paloma Picasso sunglasses and was thrilled to find them here. I sent them photos and they had their lab do a fully custom tint to recreate them. I was amazed.
I bought a pair of 1980s Carl Zeiss aviator sunglasses and I could not be happier with my purchase, the lenses are amazing and they were delivered the next day.
