Caroline's Jewelry with a Past is offering a pair of sterling silver mid-century modern handmade cuff links c. 1955. These stylish links feature a rectangle with an applied design. The design features a cupped circle pierced by a curved bar. The rectangle is 3/4" long X 1/2" wide(maximum dimensions). The cuff link has a chain fixture with a cushion shaped rectangle back. Both pieces are marked with "Sterling Silver" + "925". The links weigh 12.1 grams.
Mid-century modern was a style marked by bold and abstract geometric shapes and simple lines, occasionally a very "brutal" look. MCM started slightly before World War II and reached its zenith in the 1950's, although many of the concepts of this style continue today through design influences like Georg Jensen.
The silver content of this piece has been tested using standard accepted testing methods, such as acid testing. The silver is marked "Sterling".
When you own vintage handmade jewelry, you wear a design that is unique and represents the artist's vision. It is made by a skilled craftsman and can have features which are only found in this piece. The jewelry may exhibit the marks of the craftsman. It will not be perfect. The jewelry will show age appropriate tarnish, unless we state otherwise. These links have minimal patina.
