American Mixed Metal Cuff Links, c. 1890
These cuff links combine white metal and rolled gold to form a knot on one side and a bar of twisted strands on the other. The gold layer is pinkish, and the white metal that forms the knot is engraved with a foliate design, and looks like silver but does not test as such. The underside of one knot shows some loss to the gold, revealing a spot of the underlying brass (see Photo #5). The connecting S-bars are secure, and measure about 7/8 inch long; one of the bales is bent, but still securely soldered. The knots measure a little over 1/2 inch wide, and the twisted bars measure a little over 3/4 inch long and about 1/8 inch thick.
