Victorian Scrolls

A border of finely detailed, intertwining scrolls surrounds a raised gold center set with a small diamond.  Beautifully crafted with the Victorian love of finely worked gold,  these elegant cufflinks were ideally suited for the shimmering candle and gas light of the era.  Created in 14kt gold,  circa 1890.

Late Victorian cufflink makers were masters at working with gold to create wonderfully detailed, eye-catching designs.  They were adept at exploiting the sculptural qualities of gold to create jewels that elegantly danced and sparkled in the flickering light of the day while maintaining a pleasing solidity and weightiness in the design.  These cufflinks are an exceptional example.

The cufflinks are beautifully constructed with sturdy curved bridges connecting stationary "bean backs" to the oval fronts.  They were created by H.A. Kirby a maker of fine cufflinks and other jewels from about 1885 to 1920.  His self-named jewelry firm was located in Providence, Rhode Island.

The maker's mark of H.A. Kirby & Co  (a small Maltese cross in a circular recess) along with "14K" for the purity of the gold are stamped on the insides of the bean backs.
