Larter Art Deco Cufflinks
Green and Gold
| Bold green enamel borders surround finely
engraved zigzag centers. During the Art Deco Era Larter
& Sons created a collection of striking gold cufflinks with
jazzy engraved centers surrounded by vibrant colored
enamels. The cufflinks, like this pair, are an elegant
celebration of Jazz Age color and geometry. Crafted in
14kt gold, circa 1925.
The backs of these cufflinks show the care and craftsmanship taken by Larter & Son. Note the sturdy brackets and bridges that secure the cufflinks when worn. The intricate scroll work along the bridges was a signature of Larter & Sons during the early Art Deco period.
The maker's mark for Larter & Sons is found on the cross bars just to the right of "14K" for the purity of the gold. The maker's mark is a profile of a spring-loaded shirt stud introduced by the firm in the late 1890s.
Larter & Sons was founded in 1865 and created distinctive cufflinks, dress sets and other accessories during the late Victorian era and early decades of the 20th century. The firm had offices in New York City and manufactured its jewelry in Newark, New Jersey. Larter & Sons was known for elegant design, innovation and fine craftsmanship.
