**The woman I bought these from said they were from the 40's. I believed her until I saw the "Korea" stamp on the inner temple. They may be 60s/70s. 
She also said they were bake-light, which I do still believe they are. I did a couple of tests, the easiest being the "rub test" which will emit a smell of formaldehyde when you build up friction rubbing on the plastic. It does indeed have this odor when the test is performed. 

Era aside, these are so nice. They're very stylish. They have a very Italian/ European vibe. And the golden color with peachy/ orange swirl is an excellent combo. I think these would look great on either a guy or girl. 

 

Lenses are non-prescription medium-dark gray. 

Hard clamshell case with purple interior is included!
