Renowned Danish silversmith Georg Jensen was born in 1866. His training in metalsmithing and his education in the Fine Arts enabled him to develop a successful career based in beautiful jewelry and silver design. His signature Art Nouveau style grew increasingly popular and Jensen became a world renowned artist. Although Jensen died in 1935, his pieces are still being created today using the same craftsmanship as when he was alive.
These vintage cufflinks from the 1950s are a wonderful example of Georg Jensen's signature style! Crafted in sterling silver, the cufflinks have a stylish equestrian motif. The surface of each cufflink face displays a raised horseshoe above a smooth background. Stamped on the reverse side of the setting is the authentic "GEORG JENSEN" signature hallmark and a "925 S" sterling purity hallmark. A curved bar with hinged airplane backs completes the simple and classic design, and is stamped with the serial number "123" on the side. These striking designer cufflinks would be right at home in any vintage collection!
Measurements: The round cufflink faces have a 3/4" diameter, and measure 1/16" thick. The curved airplane backs measure 5/8" long.
Condition: The overall condition of the cufflinks is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting. The hinged backs remain secure and in proper working order. There is a darkened natural patina on the surface of the silver, which is a normal characteristic of vintage jewelry. However, the cufflinks can be polished if a brighter silver appearance is desired.
