Early Twentieth Century Cufflinks with Eastern European Secessionist Design (LEO Design)


For a few days, we would like to share some of our Early Twentieth Century Art Nouveau cufflinks—from England and from America.

This pair, probably American, have a decidedly Eastern European Secessionist design—in the form of hexagonal, "riveted" shields.  What they lack in color, they more than compensate for in design-punch and style.  Imagine them—handsome and proud—on your shirt cuffs.  Click on the photo above to learn more about them.

More Art Nouveau cufflinks tomorrow.
