Carrington Purple Enamel Cufflinks
| Striking purple enamel above an intricately
engraved pattern of radiating, scalloped circles. A
beautiful example of the guilloche enamel cufflinks of the early
1900s. The purple centers are surrounded by borders of
white enamel and yellow gold edges. Created by Carrington
& Company in 14kt gold, circa 1925.
The backs of the cufflinks are as well crafted as the fronts with the yellow gold polished to a mirror-like finish. Note the sturdy cross bars and secure brackets with beveled ends, a design favored by Carrington & Company. Careful attention to small details and the hidden parts of a cufflink was a hallmark of Carrington craftsmanship and design.
The maker's mark of Carrington & Company (a "C" surrounding a "14" for the purity of the gold) is stamped on the cross bars. Carrington was a maker of fine cufflinks and dress sets during the first half of the last century. The firm's cufflinks and other jewels were retailed by Tiffany & Co. and other carriage trade jewelers of the day.
