Elegant Lion Cufflinks

Heraldic Lion



A fierce lion rampant defends an unfurling banner inside a border of swirling Art Nouveau curves.  This heraldic scene can be imagined emblazoned on a coat of arms or hanging as a flag from the rafters in a Medieval great hall.  Finely crafted  by Whiteside & Blank in 14kt gold, circa 1900.

These cufflinks are finely crafted with sturdy curved "Y" bridges that securely attach the solid tops to bean-shaped backs.  The maker's attention to small details can be seen in the beveled ends of the "Y" where they transition smoothly to the rounded edges of the tops.

The maker's mark of Whiteside & Blank,  a crescent pierced by an arrow,  is stamped on the insides of the backs.  On the opposite side of the post "14" is stamped for the purity of the gold. This close-up also shows the depth and fine detail of the heraldic motifs on the front.  Whiteside & Blank created cufflinks that are truly miniature works of sculpture.

Whiteside & Blank was founded in 1890 and created elegant cufflinks, stickpins and other jewels during the late 1900s and early years of the 20th century.  The firm was especially known for the elegance of its designs and meticulousness of its craftsmanship.  As a bit of jewelry trivia,  one of the firm's founders, Henry Blank, was a survivor of the Titanic's ill-fated maiden voyage in 1912.
