Lenox Golf Cufflinks
| Elegant gold cufflinks celebrating an
important milestone at the Lenox Golf Club - perhaps a club
championship or the opening of a new back nine. One side
is effusively engraved "Golf" while the other is engraved "Lenox
1897" in flowing Victorian script. These cufflinks were
finely crafted in 14kt gold circa 1895.
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries Lenox, a small village in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, was one of the favored summer spots of the vacationing wealthy. A nice woodland retreat from the bustle of the seashore at Newport and the casino and track at Saratoga.
The care and craftsmanship taken in creating cufflinks 100 years ago is evident. Note the finish of the solid backs and the sturdy cross bars and brackets securing these cufflinks on the cuff. The backs are stamped "14K" for the purity of the gold.
Founded in 1864, The Lenox Club remains open today although the golf course was abandoned during the Great Depression and the fairways returned to wooded forest.
