In the 1930’s, Art Deco was all the rage. Everything—from skyscrapers to automobiles to toasters—was designed in the streamlined, forward-looking manner which was initially called “Moderne.” The cufflinks above are no exception. Made in the 1930’s, they consist of faceted onyx glass “stones” set into decorative metal surrounds. They convey the spirit and style of the Art Deco period—a time when everything seemed to be getting better and unlimited possibility was just over the horizon.
More cufflinks in days to come.
