At first glance, it is impossible to look at these cufflinks and not think of the commercial for Capt. Gordons Fish sticks. The old Seafarer or fisherman motif was popular in every coastal fishing town from New England to Washington state in the 1940s and 1950s, which is how Capt Gordon got the inspiration for the logo however this design is of very old Celtic origin.
Made in the 1940s and designer signed Anson, these very uncommon vintage cufflinks are large coin like designs made of a mix of pewter and nickel. The antiqued silver metal has exceptional detail of the fisherman in relief. Olof Anderson, the owner of Anson, was Swedish immigrant. His Celtic designs were the best ever made in US vintage cufflink jewelry.
Large in size, the cufflinks are 2 1/16" or 27 mm wide. The pair is in exceptional pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws. The metal is clean and bright with no wear, scratches, scuffs, or dings. Both cufflinks are signed Anson.
