A great gift for the Vintage Gentleman! Nice Pair of 1950s SWANK Gold Tone Metal Cufflinks with black mother-of-pearl inserts. A very nice classic pair of Mid Century Modern men's cufflinks by SWANK. The cufflinks measure 5/8" wide. The cufflinks have bullet back closures with a capsule that is suspended between two posts. The bullet can be flipped on its axis to manipulate it through the button holes in the cuff, and then flipped to secure the cufflink on the shirt. Both cufflinks are marked "SWANK" on reverse and on the posts.
