Lenox Golf Cufflinks
Along with the seashore at Newport and the track at Saratoga,
Lenox, a small village in western Massachusetts, was one of the
favored summer retreats of the vacationing wealthy in the
decades around 1900.
These elegant cufflinks were likely created to celebrate an important milestone at the Lenox Golf Club - perhaps a club championship or a course opening. One side of each cufflink is engraved "Lenox 1897" in flowing Victorian script while the other side is ornately engraved "Golf". The cufflinks were finely crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1895.
The care and craftsmanship taken in creating cufflinks 100 years ago is evident. Note the finish of the solid backs and the sturdy cross bars and brackets securing these cufflinks on the cuff. The backs are stamped "14K" for the purity of the gold.
Founded in 1864, The Lenox Club remains open today although the golf course was abandoned during the Great Depression and the fairways returned to wooded forest.
