Art Deco Enamel Cufflinks
Lavender and Gold
|Beautiful bands of lavender enamel with
guilloché separated by bright pinstripes of black and
gold. These elegant cufflinks reflect the Art Deco era's
love of bold, dramatic color and, perhaps, the influence of the
broader interests of the Tribal Arts movement. Created by
Krementz & Company in 14kt gold, circa 1930.
The lavender enamel overlays a gold substrate finely
engraved with a pattern of undulating lines, the
guilloché. The semi-transparent enamel fills
The 14kt gold backs are closed and provide a solid base to support and protect the enamel work. Note the thick cross bars and sturdy "three-toed" brackets that hold these cufflinks on the cuff. The maker, Krementz & Company, took great care in every aspect of its cufflinks.
The cross bars are stamped with the maker's mark of Krementz & Company - the profile of a stylized collar button (similar to a two-handled umbrella). To the left of the maker's mark "14K" is stamped for the purity of the gold. Krementz was founded in 1866 and created elegant cufflinks and other jewels during the late 19th and for much of the 20th century.
