About JH Collectibles Glasses
Originally founded as Junior House in 1945, this Milwaukee-based clothing company changed their name to JH Collectibles in 1977 and reached their peak in the fashion world in the 1980s. They produced women’s clothing and accessories in the same styles as the era’s leading design houses, but at more accessible prices. JH Collectibles positioned itself as a seller of investment clothing and accessories for the average American woman.
As a result, vintage eyeglasses from JH Collectibles represent some of the most popular women’s glasses styles from the time period. They were also made from high quality materials that made it possible for many original JH Collectibles glasses to survive today, still ready for daily wear.
Among the classic styles of eyeglasses and sunglasses that JH Collectibles offered, you will find popular looks like:
- Cat Eye Glasses – The ultimate women’s style in the 1950s, cat eye glasses make a fashion statement with narrow lenses and ornamentation in the corners. JH Collectibles produced cat eye glasses in bright colors and more subdued tones for a selection that matched any outfit.
- Wire Rim Glasses – Wire rim glasses are always in style, and this classic was a staple of designers like JH Collectibles. As a midrange glasses manufacturer, wire rim glasses from JH Collectibles could be made from gold, aluminum, or steel.
- Oversized Glasses – The 70s and 80s, JH Collectibles followed the emerging trend of large, oversized lenses. New lightweight plastics made enormous square and ovoid frames possible for eyeglasses and sunglasses for a stand out look.
Glasses designed by JH Collectibles designers were produced in Italy with a high standard of craftsmanship. Materials for glasses frames included metals like gold and steel as well as plastics.
The JH Collectibles glasses we offer are carefully chosen and inspected for quality to ensure we are offering frames that will continue to look great and last for decades to come with the right care.
