This large 1960s vintage cufflink set by Swank features two large Oval Cameos with female nude design on silver tone metal settings. These are wrap-a-round or "Wrap Link" cufflinks, that is they have a band of metal mesh that wraps around the side of the cuff. The cufflinks have bullet back closures; a torpedo, or bullet shaped, 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. A great vintage men's accessory set in excellent unused or barely used condition! The cufflinks are a large size, measuring about 1" across the face. A beautiful set for the vintage gentleman! Each cufflink is marked with the "S" in Shield logo that was used by Swank.
