About Oliver Peoples Sheldrake
Like a miniature work of art, the Oliver Peoples Sheldrake design is fit for a gallery in Hollywood. The optical company, Oliver Peoples, began life when co-founder Larry Leight discovered an estate collection of vintage American-made eyewear and started a company on Sunset Boulevard. These Oliver Peoples vintage frames had beautiful filigreed designs. They were the inspiration for innovative eyewear with a classic look that set them apart from flashy, futuristic styles of the 1980s. The Sheldrake is reminiscent of a design favored by Andy Warhol. It has distinctive P-shaped lenses and a keyhole bridge with silver accents. The five-barrel hinge makes these products more durable, along with the core wire that gives strength to the structure. The rounded shape comes in a hand-sculpted frame made of acetate, which has a shiny, polished finish and a deep color. Celebrities from rocker Courtney Love to British actress Helena Bonham Carter love this style and you can wear it for your regular eyeglasses or as a pair of Oliver Peoples sunglasses. For retro shades with Hollywood style, a large inventory of Oliver Peoples Sheldrake eyewear is available on eBay.
