Art Nouveau Lucky Cufflinks
| A four-leaf clover, lucky horseshoe and
wishbone promise the wearer of these cufflinks good
fortune. The influence of Art Nouveau design is reflected
in the sinuous curves of the four-leaf clover's stem as it
twists and turns to form the outer edge of the cufflinks.
Created by Larter & Sons in 14kt gold, circa 1900.
Fine cufflinks should be carefully examined from every direction including the backs. These cufflinks are secured with sturdy bean backs attached to the fronts with curved split bridges. The curve and flare of the bridges helps assure that the links remain securely and properly oriented on the cuff.
The tops of the bridges are stamped "14K" for the purity of the gold and with the maker's mark of Larter & Sons, the profile of a shirt stud patented by the firm in the late 1890s. Founded in 1865, Larter & Sons created distinctive gentleman's jewelry and accessories for nearly 150 years.
Name: Good Luck!
