Art Nouveau Cufflinks

Sinuous Vines



Sinuous tendrils of a stylized flower or vine circle a sparkling star-set diamond.  During the Art Nouveau era the jewelry manufacturer H. A. Kirby created a small collection of wonderfully weird  gold cufflinks that appear to have been inspired by fantastic, surreal plants.  This example was created in 14kt gold around 1900.

The cufflinks are beautifully constructed with "bean" backs attached to the solid gold fronts with sturdy curved bridges.  The reverse of the fronts and insides of the bean backs are stamped with the maker's mark (a small Maltese cross in a circular recess) of H.A. Kirby & Co and "14K" for the purity of the gold.

Henry A. Kirby was an imaginative jeweler based in Providence, Rhode Island who created imaginative floral- and nature-inspired cufflinks during the Art Nouveau era.  More about H.A. Kirby and his imaginative creations can be found at H.A. Kirby and the Great Cufflink Caper.
