Fierce Lion and Leopard Cufflinks

Carter, Howe regal lion and leopard cufflinks. (J9158)

Lions and Leopards!

Fierce lions and leopards glower from the ends of these regal cufflinks.  The beautifully sculpted big cats are a touch of British heraldry that will add a little panache to any cuff.  Roar!  Created by Carter, Howe & Company in 14kt gold, circa 1900.

Carter, Howe & Company (later Carter, Gough & Company) was one of the premier makers of fine cufflinks and other jewels during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  They were cufflink and dress set specialists who took particular care in designing and crafting their cufflinks and related accessories.

The Carter, Howe attention to craftsmanship and design can be seen on the backs of these cufflinks. Note the gracefully curved bridges that are sturdily anchored to the closed leonine tops and "bean-shaped" backs.  This helps assure that the cufflinks remain safely the cuff while protecting the richly sculpted details of the tops.

Carter, Howe maker's mark. (J9158)

The Carter, Howe maker's mark, an arrowhead surrounding a small letter "C",  is stamped on the curved bridges of the cufflinks. To the left of the maker's mark "14" is stamped for the purity of the gold.
