They were mainly popular in the 1950s and 1960s among fashionable women and are usually associated with the Beehive hairstyle. They preceded the large bug-eye glasses of the '70s, '80s and '90s.

Famous quotes containing the words glasses, cat and/or eye:

    Nothing in Nature’s sober found,
    But an eternal health goes round.

    Fill all the glasses there—for why
    Should every creature drink but I?
    Why, man of morals, tell me why?
    Abraham Cowley (1618–1667)

    “A cat may look at a king,” said Alice. “I’ve read that in some book, but I don’t remember where.”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    When he became all eye when one was present, and all memory when one was gone; when the youth becomes the watcher of windows, and studious of a glove, a veil, a ribbon, or the wheels of a carriage, when no place is too solitary, and none too silent.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
