Art Nouveau Cufflinks

Art Nouveau flower and diamond cufflinks. (J8805)

Sinuous Vines!

The sinuous tendrils of a stylized vine or flower surround a sparkling star-set diamond.  These cufflinks are part of a small collection of flora-inspired cufflinks created by Henry A. Kirby during the Art Nouveau period.  Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1900.

In the years around 1900 Art Nouveau jewelers created beautiful jewels that interpreted nature in fantastic, sometimes surreal, designs.  These cufflink are a wonderful example of the dramatic, imaginative designs of the era.

The cufflinks are beautifully constructed with "bean" backs attached to the solid gold fronts with sturdy curved bridges.  The reverse of the fronts and insides of the bean backs are stamped with the maker's mark (a small Maltese cross in a circular recess) of H.A. Kirby & Co and "14K" for the purity of the gold.

Henry A. Kirby was a wonderfully imaginative jeweler based in Providence, Rhode Island who created imaginative floral- and natural-theme cufflinks during the Art Nouveau era.  More about H.A. Kirby and the imaginative cufflinks he created can be found at H.A. Kirby and the Great Cufflink Caper.
