A great gift for the dog lover! Very nice 1950s Men's Vintage Gold Tone Cufflinks and Tie Bar Set made by SWANK with hand painted enameled metal dog head designs! A novel set in fantastic condition, looks mostly unused! The set consists of 2 gold tone cufflinks with bullet back closures; a torpedo, or bullet shaped, capsule that is suspended between two posts. The bullet flips on its axis to manipulate it through the button holes in the cuff, and then flips to secure the cufflink on the shirt. The matching tie bar / tie clasp / tie clip has a strong clip on reverse to hold it to tie. Each piece of the set is impressed with the company name "SWANK".
