BA002 - Pair of opalescent oval studs, hinged shank

In stock

£10.00

Fabulous antique oval studs or links.  They have a domed opalescent glass top - looks pale blue with orange highlights in certain light.  Set in a gilt metal frame, with a hinged arm shank which closes with a spring mechanism.  Size 3/4" (1.8 cm) long.  Price is for the pair.

Note: Similar to Reading's patent, but this pair is unmarked.  By the mid 1960's, the link holes on men's shirts were set very close to the edge, so the open hinged arm could be passed through both sides to close the cuff. (Ref. Button Lines Sept 1979)
