A find pair of antique cufflinks. These cufflinks are crafted using the reverse intaglio technique, whereby a crystal is carved and painted from behind, creating a three-dimensional effect that became popular for men’s jewellery in the late Victorian era. Each link depicts a different game bird in a detailed naturalistic setting. During the nineteenth century, novelty jewellery representing sporting pursuits such as shooting became popular, and these cufflinks are an excellent example of this style. These cufflinks capture the late Victorian and Edwardian style for sporting cufflinks and would look handsome with a tweed suit.
