Art Deco Zigzag Cufflinks
|Finely engraved, radiating waves zigzag outward
toward white gold borders. The jazzy energy of the centers
is perfectly balanced by the jazzy geometry of the borders in
this miniature masterpiece of Art Deco design. Created by
Richardson & Co. in 14kt white and yellow gold, circa
The reverse of the cufflinks is crafted in 14kt yellow gold polished to a bright finish. The cufflinks are secured on the cuff by a sturdy bridge and pivoting bracket design favored by Richardson & Co. Note that one end of the cross bar is stationary while the other is hinged to ease the passage of the cufflinks through a button hole. (Please excuse the shadowy reflections of the camera.)
The Richardson Manufacturing Company, founded in 1840, was one of the earliest makers of fine cufflinks and jewelry in the United States. During the 1920s and 1930s the firm created finely crafted Art Deco cufflinks that captured the elegance and excitement of the Jazz Age. The firm's maker's mark, a fancy "R" followed by "14K", is stamped on the cross bars of the cufflinks.
