Art Deco Pinstripe Cufflinks

Jazzy Pinstripes

Jazz Age cufflinks with rippling pinstripes surrounded by finely engraved borders with a repeated geometric motif.  The strong graphic appeal of these cufflinks suggests that the design was influenced by the interest in the indigenous arts and artifacts of Africa, Oceania and other distant lands during the Art Deco era.   Finely crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1925.

The backs of the cufflinks are as well crafted as the fronts.  Note the sturdy curved bridges that secure the tops.  The bridges are fixed at one end and hinged at the other - a design intended tot ease the passage of the cufflink through a button hole.

The backs of the cufflinks are stamped with a maker's mark and the gold purity mark "14K".  The maker's mark ("BT" or, possibly, just "B") has not yet been identified.

Many of the fine cufflink makers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries were based in Newark, New Jersey and didn't survive the economic downturn of the 1930s.  Sadly, the histories and records of many of these firms have been lost.  I suspect this is true of the unidentified maker of these cufflinks.  The best record we have of these anonymous makers are the beautiful cufflinks they created.
