Black and Gold Cufflinks
|Intricate designs accented with black enamel
frame a striking geometry of nested hexagons and
triangles. These elegant cufflinks reflect the Art Deco
love for rich, repeated patterns and abstract geometric
forms. Created in 10kt gold, circa 1925.
The cufflinks are well constructed with brightly polished gold backs, sturdy brackets and strong cross bars. The cross bars are stamped with the maker's mark of Ostby & Barton ("OB") and "10K" for the purity of the gold.
The jewelry maker Ostby & Barton was founded in 1879 in Providence, Rhode Island. The firm created fine cufflinks and other jewels for over 80 years. One of the founders, Engelhart Ostby, was lost in the ill-fated voyage of the Titanic in 1912.
