Remember the 'Woodie" station wagons of the 1930s through the 1950s? They were partly made of wood panels along the sides and were very popular family vehicles.
This vintage cufflinks / tie tack set was made for the American Automobile Association (aka 'Triple A') and they seem to have been inspired by the Woodie cars because they're made with a wood grain inlay. The AAA logo sits on top of the wood which is in a silvertone cufflink setting.
Cufflinks and tack style tie clasp measure 7/8 inch across. Backs have the cufflink patent number 2974381 which was issued in 1956 and used through the 1950s and 1960s.
Swivels work smoothly. The set is in excellent vintage condition. Great gift for the car enthusiast.
When you're out there, stuck on the road...who ya gonna call? AAA!
HISTORY - The American Automobile Association (the "AAA" or "Triple-A") was founded on March 4, 1902 in Chicago in response to a lack of roads and highways suitable for automobiles. Nine motor clubs with a total of 1,500 members banded together to form the Triple-A. Those individual motor clubs included the Chicago Automobile Club, Automobile Club of America, Automobile Club of New Jersey, and others.
The first AAA road maps were published in 1905. AAA began printing hotel guides in 1917. The Triple-A began its School Safety Patrol Program in 1920, the first of the association's driver safety programs, which provided local schools with materials, including badges and ID cards to train and organize students into a patrol force.
