Gold China Men Vintage Cufflinks 1950s Jewelry
In the 1950s and 1960s there were several US jewelry designers who made Oriental theme jewelry. Oriental jewelry came in and out of style for centuries but it wasn't until the 1950s that it was produced by US jewelry designers such as Korda, Hattie Carnegie, ART, and later by KJL.
These 1950-1960 era vintage cufflinks are called China Men, adorned in thick, richly plated yellow gold. Think about it. What did you know about China in the 1950-1960 era ? Only the very elite travelled there, and only very well to do men in the US could appreciate Chinese culture. Most people in the US at that time associated China with rice. Nothing except rice was being imported to the US from China. Yes, the world has changed now, but when you look at these cufflinks you must ask yourself, who wore them, or who were they made for?
Medium in size, the cufflinks are 1" or 30 mm tall. The pair is in pristine like new microscopically clean condition with no imperfections or flaws. They have obviously never been worn. There is no gold wear and no scratches, scuffs, or dings. The cufflinks are not signed.
