Three generations of designs attributed to P. Oliver Goldsmith Ltd. our housed in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England. Founded in 1926 by Philip Oliver Goldsmith, the company gained international notoriety when his son Charles secured royalty both in the UK and abroad as clientele-most notably Princes Grace of Monaco and Diana, Princes of Wales.
Grandson Andrew began designing eyewear in 1963 , continuing the tradition of uncompressed quality and craftsmanship. Reproductions of the company’s iconic styles continue to be produced with the same attention to detail and our available at our stores. Bespoke customization of classic designs is also accommodated upon request.
Philip’s great granddaughter Claire Goldsmith continues the traditons established by the three generations that preceeded her. Inspired by British history and heritage, she is producing ‘modern clasics’ for her own C G Legacey Collection.
It will be our pleasure to host Claire in Toronto this March in order to preview new designs inspired by the cult subcultures of Mods and Rockers which notoriously clashed in the resort towns of Southern England in the 1960’s.
Anticipate the forthcoming collection, C G: Mod Rocker-soon to be causing a sensation!
