This is a wonderful pair of Mexican sterling silver abalone gentleman's shell cuff links. The abalone is bezel mounted and form the round shape. The abalone shell has a nice sheen in beautiful shades of pink, purple, blue, green and brown. The cuff links, circa 1950, measure 3/4" across and have a toggle clasp. One is stamped "Taxco - Sterling" and the other carries the Eagle #3 mark, which also indicates Taxco. The Eagle mark was first used in 1948 and continued into the early 1970's. Nice vintage condition with no damages and original patina.
