Antique Victorian Gents Dress Set Cufflinks Button Larter Gold MOP Pearl (ID:4984)


Antique, Victorian - early 20th century gentleman's stud set. Cufflinks and buttons in fitted box (not original?). Mother of Pearl, Natural pearls 14k yellow and

white gold. Made by Larter & Sons, Newark, New Jersey.

Cufflinks measure 11mm accross. Buttons measure 5mm accross.

Octogonal shaped. Mother of Pearl disks. The colour with lovely range depending on how the light falls on it, from blue-grey to silvery white. Offset by a border of

patterned white gold. Each disk centered with a natural pearl, measuring 2.10 - 2.3mm in diam. Backs are a very rich yellow gold.

Each piece is hallmarked with 14k gold standard and the Larter & Sons maker's mark.

Condition: I don't believe that the buttons were ever removed from their fitting as the cardboard backing has not been torn (see 'photos). One cufflink has had a

pearl reglued and should have your jeweller clean up a little residue that was left (see magnified'photos). Otherwise, good condition with no damage to be found.

According to Dorothy Rainwater, authority on American Jewelry manufacturers, Larter & Sons was considered to be have a leading place in men's jewelry - see page 149.
