Egyptian Revival Cufflinks

Winged Scarabs

Finely sculpted, beautifully detailed winged scarabs grace these Egyptian Revival cufflinks from the twilight of the 19th century.  They are an elegant marriage of the Egyptian Revival and Art Nouveau styles.  Created by Sloan & Co. in 14kt gold, circa 1900.

In ancient Egypt scarabs were viewed as a symbol of creation and rebirth associated with daily journey of the sun across the sky.  In the years around 1900 there was a fascination with the arts and beliefs of ancient civilizations and jewelry of the time often incorporated symbols and motifs from the distant past.

These cufflinks are finely modeled and richly detailed.  The natural patina of the gold throws the winged scarabs into high relief and creates a sense of ancient, hidden mystery.

The backs of the cufflinks are as nicely crafted as the fronts.  The solid tops are attached to oval backs with sturdy split bridges.  The curve and flair of the bridges helps assure that the links remain properly oriented on the cuff.  The cufflink makers of the past always paid close attention to the small details.
