Art Nouveau Lucky Cufflinks
| A four-leaf clover, lucky horseshoe and
wishbone offer the wearer of these cufflinks good fortune.
The influence of Art Nouveau design can be seen in the sinuous
curve of the lucky clover's stem as it twists and curves to form
the border of the cufflinks. Created by Larter & Sons
in 14kt gold, circa 1900.
Fine jewels should be beautiful from every direction, so it is always best to carefully examine the backs of cufflinks. These cufflinks have sturdy bean backs attached to the fronts with deeply curved split bridges. The curve and flare of the bridges helps assure that the links rest securely and remain properly oriented on the cuff.
These cufflinks were created in the early 1900s by the jewelry makers Larter & Sons. Founded in 1865, Larter & Sons created distinctive gentleman's jewelry for nearly 150 years. The cufflinks are stamped on the top of the bridge "14K" for the purity of the gold. Just to the right of the gold mark is the maker's mark for Larter & Sons, a profile of a shirt stud patented by the firm in 1898.
