A great gift for the theater lover! Nice Large Mid-Century Modern Mad Men Era Cufflinks set featuring Comedy Mask of Thalia, who in Greek mythology is the Muse of Comedy and Idyllic Poetry. A nice set in gold tone metal with black painted accents. 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. The cufflinks measure a large 3/4". The cufflinks are marked "ANSON".
Anson founded as the Anderson Tool & Die Company in 1938 by Olof Anderson who was a Swedish immigrant to America making items for jewelry manufacturers. During WWII the machinery was adapted to milling machines and entered into war production work. In 1945 Anderson formed Anson Incorporated and began men's jewelry production. In the early 1960s "Anson" began using script instead of block letters for their logo.
These attractive high quality vintage men's cufflinks by Anson are in nice barely used condition! Our cufflink sets include a handmade paper gift box with cotton lining and make a great gift for your favorite vintage gentleman!
