Elegant Art Deco Cufflinks
Black and White!
| In the early 1930s Art Deco design balanced
its earlier passion for bold, vibrant color with a new aesthetic
of dramatic black and white contrasts. These elegant
cufflinks illustrate the sophisticated new look with stark
geometric accents in black enamel framing white gold centers
engraved with zigzag pinstripes. Created in 14kt
gold, circa 1930.
The backs of the cufflinks are well crafted in 14kt white gold and polished to a smooth finish with gently rounded edges. The cufflinks are secured on the cuff with sturdy cross bars and distinctive guttered brackets.
The cross bars are stamped with a maker's mark (a "T" over an "H") and "14" for the purity of the gold. This mark is somewhat of a mystery, but is believed to be associated with the Irving Manufacturing Company and its eponymous founder Irving Heidelsheimer. Irving Manufacturing was a maker of fine cufflinks and other jewels during the early decades of the 20th century.
