Arts & Crafts Hammered Sterling Silver Shield-Form Cufflinks (LEO Design)


Though the LEO Design aesthetic begins with the Arts & Crafts movement, funnily enough, we do not find that many pairs of Arts & Crafts cufflinks.  This week we shared a small collection of some of the Arts & Crafts cufflinks to be found in the LEO Design on-line shop. We end our presentation with this handsome pair of silver cufflinks.

Gothic and Medieval themes were commonly employed in Arts & Crafts design.  These sterling silver octagonal shield-form cufflinks display two Crosses Pattée—a medieval cross of four equivalent members which widen from center to edge. In these cufflinks, one cross is hammered, the other is embellished with a small stylized botanical (like an Acanthus bud or Fleur-de-Lys).  They would provide handsome punctuation on any wrist cuff.  Click on the photo above to learn more about them.
