Art Deco Enamel Cufflinks
Green and Gold
| An elegant pair of green and gold cufflinks
from Larter & Sons, a maker of elegant cufflinks and
other gentlemen's jewelry during the early decades of the last
century. The rich green enamel borders frame golden
centers engraved with jazzy zigzag pinstripes in a wonderful Art
Deco celebration of color and geometry. Crafted in 14kt
gold, circa 1925.
The backs of fine cufflinks should be as closely examined as the fronts. Here you will find sturdy brackets and bridges that securely hold these cufflinks on the cuff. The elaborate scroll work along the bridges was a signature of Larter & Sons during the early Art Deco period.
The maker's mark for Larter & Sons is found on the opposite side of the cross bars just to the right of the "14K" gold purity mark. The maker's mark is a small profile of a spring-loaded shirt stud introduced by the firm in the late 1890s.
Larter & Sons was founded in 1865 and created distinctive cufflinks, dress sets and other gentlemen's accessories during the late Victorian era and early decades of the 20th century. The firm had offices in New York City and manufactured its jewelry in Newark, New Jersey. Larter & Sons was known for elegant design, innovation and craftsmanship.
