    I got these off of ebay myself, they are from the 1950s. I usually like silver but these were a horse of a different color.

    I think they look a bit like early Georg Jensen. Lovely.

    Yes, art nouveau, art deco - whatever you want to call it. They don't make 'em like they used to.

    Anyone have any jet ones? They seem to have fallen out of fashion since the Victorian age.

    Here's a pair of vintage French cufflinks, enamel and silvertone mount. Contrary to recent rumours, the fleur de lys design does not signal Royalist leanings on my part.

    ^Those are 14k white gold front with a gold colored band, which I assume is base metal although I'm not sure.

    Here are some sterling links:

    Lucky Strike, until I realised you were laying your tie across your wrist in some photos, I was under the impression that you had an amazing collection of garish overcoats.

    These are the cuff links I bought last December for my wedding anniversary celebration. I bought them from Herringbone, the Australian shirtmakers. [​IMG]

    I'm in cuff-link mourning. I took delivery of a nice pair of Kum-a-parts, placed them in the outer compartment of my back and somehow contrived to lose one on the way home. [​IMG]

    A good thing about these links is that they can be 'combined' with other 'orphans'...

    Thanks, Sator and jml.

    Sorry about the loss, chobochobo. Trawl for some orphans on the 'bay.

    This thread inspired me to search ebay for cufflinks on my own.

    I won these cufflinks today at ebay:

    Classic, deep scroll-engraving, Degendorff, like on a really nice shotgun. Very nice. [​IMG] Silver and enamel with gold flower inlay, probably late thirties
