Beautiful and cute nautical cuff links from early XX Century. VERY RARE and highly collectible antique 1910s Silver and Rose Gold cufflinks. I think (not sure) the rose gold is a wash or an overlay. Would make a lovely wedding gift! For best indication of condition please refer to photos.
The Grand Tour was the standard European vacation of the Georgian and Victorian eras until the beginning of the First World War in 1914. The opportunity it gave for studying culture, architecture and art made it a tradition, especially for the upper classes. And what better souvenir of this long trip than pieces of native souvenir jewelry such as Italian cameos, mosaic and pietra dura pieces. Pieces often also had historical inspirations from the remnants of Pompeii to the pyramids of Egypt, cultural learning was a focal point of the grand tour, the process of remembrance spilled over into jewelry souvenirs.
