Art Deco Scottie Cufflinks
| Nobly playful Scottish terriers
stand before the iconic rays of Art Deco sun bursts.
The finely detailed pooch is framed in black and gold borders.
A striking example of Art Deco design and the enamelist's
art. Crafted in 14kt gold with guilloche enameling,
Guilloche enameling is a wonderful technique in which a metallic surface, in this case gold, is engraved with an intricate pattern (sun bursts and Scotties) and then covered with translucent enamel. The color of the enamel pools in the deeper recesses of the engraving and throws the design into dramatic, shimmering relief.
The backs of these cufflinks are solidly crafted in 14kt gold and closed to protect the fine enamel work. Sturdy cross bars and brackets secure the cufflinks on the cuff. The backs are stamped "14K" for the purity of the gold. The makers of these cufflinks took as much care and time in crafting the backs as they did the fronts.
