Lion and Scroll Cufflinks

Regal Lion

A regal lion announces his presence with a fierce roar while unfurling a scroll or banner.  The cufflinks bring to mind the heraldic flags that once hung in the Great Halls of Medieval castles.  Along the edges of the cufflinks rhythmic swirls add a touch of Art Nouveau elegance.  Created by Whiteside & Blank in 14kt gold circa 1900.

The cufflinks are solidly crafted in gold with sturdy "Y" bridges securely attaching the decorated fronts to bean-shaped backs.  The maker's attention to fine details can be seen in the beveled ends of the curved "Y" bridges where they meet the fronts.  This minimizes the risk of the cufflinks inadvertently catching a loose thread on the cuff.

The maker's mark of Whiteside & Blank (a crescent pierced by an arrow) is stamped on the inside of the bean backs.  On the opposite side of the post "14" is stamped for the purity of the gold.  A sense of the depth and fine detail of the scroll work decorating the fronts can be seen to the left of my finger.

Whiteside & Blank was a maker of elegant cufflinks, stickpins and brooches during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  The firm was known for its finely sculpted, richly detailed designs executed with meticulous craftsmanship. Whiteside & Blank cufflinks are unquestionably exquisite miniature works of art.
