English Art Deco Oval Color-Blocked Cufflinks with Royal Blue, Danish Blue and Dove Grey Enameling (LEO Design)


We are in the process of listing dozens of newly-acquired pairs of vintage cufflinks to our website's on-line shop.  For the next several days, we'll be sharing some of the handsome Art Deco options, now available at LEO Design.

In my opinion, color-blocking can often go quite wrong.  Even the best of them (Mondrian, Rothko, Yves Saint Laurent) don't really appeal to me.  But I do love these English Art Deco cufflinks, made in the Thirties!  Maybe it's the sophisticated color combination: no primary colors!  Or the understated cool tones of grey and blues.  Or, perhaps, it's the small size—just a little touch of color-blocking—which is not a visual assault on my vision.  I find these cufflinks very handsome, indeed.  Sorry Piet (and Mark and Yves)!  This is color-blocking done well.

More newly-acquired cufflinks tomorrow and in the days to come.
