A fine quality pair of vintage sterling damascene cufflinks with an intricate scenic Japanese theme.
Each link has approximately the same design of a pagoda with Mt. Fuji in the background and small details like birds flying, trees and a small house by a river. The small end of the links have three flowers.
The image is done in fine silver and 24k gold and possible rose gold or copper meticulously etched and inlaid with amazing detail.
The flower sides have a gold flower between two smaller silver ones.
Marked on the back 'SILVER' the links tested sterling with acid.
The ovals measure 11/16" by .5", the small ends are 5/8" by .25".
They are in still sewn onto the original silk faced card in half of a wooden box so they are near mint except for the tarnish. It is mostly the backs that have blackened, they can be polished if desired but I prefer not to change the old patina.
Very well made, this is a wonderful example of vintage Japanese damascene.
