An outstanding pair of French Art Nouveau 18K yellow gold cufflinks in the Egyptian Revival taste. The square faces are intricately pierced and decorated with round reserves featuring beautifully-detailed scarabs, surrounded by full-blown and bud-form lotus blossoms. The navette-shaped backs are decorated with the same elements, but without the ornate hand-sawn piercing. The lotus blossoms are joined by undulating lines that suggest the watery depths of the Nile. The surfaces are finished in the semi-matte Russian finished often used on the better pieces of French Art Nouveau jewels. The connectors are fully stamped with tete daigle 18K gold hallmarks and the poincon for an unidentified master goldsmith. There is also a serial number, indicating that the cufflinks were sold by an important jeweler such as Boucheron or Cartier. These are among the finest Art Nouveau cufflinks weve seen. Origin: France, ca. 1890. Condition: excellent, sharp detail. Size: 9/16 x 9/16. Weight: 8.8 grams.
