Vintage Art Deco Goldtone Swank Kum-A-Part Cufflinks

Vintage late 20s or very early 30s goldtone “Kum-A-Part” snap cufflinks from Swank feature a square shape with design of etched horizontal lines.

Invented by Lawrence Baer (brother to the co-founder of Baer & Wilde, a division of the Attleboro Manufacturing Company which morphed in 1936 into Swank Products, Inc.), the Kum-A-Part “cuff button” was introduced in 1918 and help launch Swank on its path to becoming the world’s largest men’s jewelry manufacturer. The company turned out 4 million pairs of Kum-A-Part cufflinks per year in the late teens, and the item remained in production until 1931.

The cufflinks measure ½” square; each link splits into two ¼” high halves, both of which are stamped “Swank” and “Kum-A-Part”. Excellent condition.
