Pair of sterling silver cufflinks designed by Alphonse La Paglia for International Silver Company, ca 1953.
They measure 1 1/8" wide, and 7/8" high.
Stamped on back: "International Silver, La Paglia Designed, 113"
Cufflinks are in good condition, some tarnish visible, very slight signs of wear on silver surface.
The design is clearly in the Danish George Jensen style, and features ginko leaves with a tendril and beads or berries.
Alphonse La Paglia (1907-1953) was an Italian designer who studied in Denmark with George Jensen, and worked as an artist for Jensen until 1952, when he left to join International Silver Company and set up a crafts association in Connecticut. The association created both holloware and jewelry in the Danish Modern style. La Paglia died in 1953, but International continued to produce his designs until 1957, when the crafts association ended production.
