Carrington Purple Enamel Cufflinks
Striking purple enamel over an engine-turned pattern of radiating, scalloped circles. A beautiful example of the guilloche enamels created in the early 1900s. The purple centers are surrounded by borders of white enamel and yellow gold. Created by Carrington & Company in 14kt gold, circa 1925.
The reverse of the cufflinks are well crafted with the sturdy cross bars and secure brackets favored by Carrington & Company. The yellow gold backs are polished to a mirror-like finish (please excuse the reflections from our camera). Careful attention to detail is a hallmark of Carrington craftsmanship and design.
The maker's mark of Carrington & Company (a "C" surrounding a "14") is visible on the cross bars. Carrington was a maker of fine cufflinks and dress sets during the first half of the last century.
