Egyptian Revival Cufflinks

Pharaoh's Maze!

The mysteries of ancient Egypt have long been a fertile source of inspiration for jewelry makers and designers.  During the Art Deco era the discovery of King Tut's tomb gave renewed impetus to the fascination in the art and architecture of the pharaohs.

This striking pair of Art Deco cufflinks features borders of stylized anthemia (or lotus blossoms) and reed-like bundles suggestive of a stand of papyrus.  The centers are a mesmerizing swirl of concentric circles.  Perhaps it is the maze in a Pharaoh's garden or the rippling waters of a shaded Nile-side pool.  Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1925.

The backs of the cufflinks are as well crafted as the fronts with solid cross bars and sturdy strap brackets to secure these cufflinks on the cuff.  Also note the brightly polished surfaces and softly rounded, smooth edges, small details that might be overlooked by a lesser maker.

The cross bars are stamped "14K" for the purity of the gold followed by the maker's mark of Bippart, Griscom & Osborn - a flaming torch lying horizontally.  Bippart, Griscom & Osborn was a maker of fine gold cufflinks and other jewels during the late 19th century and early decades of the 20th century.
