Vintage Spanish Damascene Toledoware Chain Cuff Links. They have a fabulous old world look with a black background and a Griffin or Dragon design. The art of Damascene involves hand carving scenes or designs into a black oxidized metal surface where the grooves (the carvings) are then filled back in with gold and silver foil. It is said to have been performed for a few thousand years now.
These are traditional chain cuff links with an identical design on each piece connected by a short length of chain. This creates a slightly looser fastening than other styles, with visible decoration on both sides of the closed buttonholes.
- Size: 17 x 10mm
