Elegant Art Deco Cufflinks
| Celebratory garlands decorate yellow gold
centers surrounded by white gold borders of stylized anthemia
and classical motifs. An elegant example of Art Deco's
embrace of classical design. Created by Jacob Hookaylo in
14kt white and yellow gold, circa 1925.
The care and craftsmanship with which the Hookaylo workshop created these cufflinks can be seen on the reverse. Note the strong wing-form bridges and sturdy brackets that secure these cufflinks on the cuff. The backs are polished to a mirror-like finish, please excuse the shadowy reflections from the camera.
One side of the bridges is stamped with an "H" inside a horizontal lozenge, the maker's mark of Jacob Hookaylo. The opposite side is stamped with "14K" indicating the purity of the gold. Hookaylo was a Russian emigre who created elegant cufflinks in Newark, New Jersey during the 1920s and 1930s. His cufflinks are beautiful, miniature icons of Art Deco style and elegance.
