Art Deco Enamel Cufflinks
Art Deco Enamel!
|Striking pinstripes in yellow and gold between
beautiful lavender guilloche enamels. A border of
primitive geometric designs surrounds the colorful
centers. A masterpiece of Art Deco design created by
Krementz & Company in 14kt gold, circa 1925.
In the guilloched areas the underlying gold surface was engraved with an intricate pattern of wavy lines and then covered with translucent lavender enamel. The color of the enamel pooled in the deeper recesses of the engraving throwing the design into shimmering, dramatic relief.
The 14kt gold backs of the cufflinks are closed to provide a solid, protective base for the enamel work. Thick cross bars and sturdy "three-toed" (trifid) brackets secure the cufflinks on the cuff. Krementz & Co. took equal care in designing and crafting both the backs and the fronts of its cufflinks.
The cross bars are stamped "14K" for the purity of the gold. To the right of the gold stamp is the maker's mark of Krementz & Company - a stylized collar button (also sometimes known as the "Krementz moustache" or "two-handle umbrella"). Krementz was founded in 1866 and created elegant cufflinks and other jewels during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
