Art Deco Onyx Cufflinks

Larter onyx cufflinks. (J9385)

Onyx Elegance

Elegant black onyx cufflinks with finely detailed Art Deco borders.  The contrast of the black onyx with the white gold borders perfectly highlights the striking geometric elegance of Art Deco design.   Created by Larter & Co. in 14kt gold,  circa 1925.

The backs of antique cufflinks should always be examined as closely as the fronts.  The reverses of these cufflinks are crafted in 14kt yellow gold polished to a bright finish (please excuse the shadowy reflections from the camera).  The maker's attention to detail can be seen in the sturdy cross bars and stirrup brackets that securely hold these cufflinks on the cuff.

The cross bars are stamped with the maker's mark of Larter & Sons (a shirt stud in profile) surrounded by "14K" for the purity of the gold.  The maker's mark is a stylized shirt stud patented by Halsey Larter in 1898 and popularized by Larter & Sons during the early 20th century.

Larter & Sons was founded at the close of the Civil War and made distinctive cufflinks and dress sets during the late Victorian era and early decades of the last century.  The firm had offices in New York City and manufactured its jewelry across the Hudson River in Newark, New Jersey, at one time the jewelry making capital of the United States.
