Streamlined Modernist Art Deco Cufflinks by Hickok, New York (LEO Design)


This week we are sharing a selection of Modernist cufflinks, recently added to our on-line collection. Please click here to see our full range of cufflinks—from Victorian to Modernist.

As we discussed two days ago, "Modernism" began in the late Nineteenth Century and included Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts, and the Art Deco movements.  Modernism came to full fruition with the Mid-Century Modern period after World War II, the 1950's through the 1970's.  The handsome cufflinks, shown above, are Modernist—but with the streamlined, sculptural Art Deco influences which suggested the "Jet Age Industrialism" to come. They were made in Rochester, New York by Hickok.  Click on the photo above to learn more about them.

More Modernist cufflinks tomorrow and in the days to come.
