Vintage Mexico Sterling Silver Aztec Mayan Calendar Cufflinks, Men's Gift, Pre-Eagle, Unisex #c675
These beautiful cufflinks are very early Mexican, pre-eagle mark pieces. They are square in shape and feature chased circular designs of Aztec or Mayan calendars on the fronts. The cufflinks are toggle style with handmade mechanisms. The silver has a shiny finish and the cufflinks have a fabulous handmade appearance. They are wonderful handcrafted silver beauties!

The fronts of the cufflinks measure about 11/16 inch long, 11/16 inch wide and have a depth of approximately 3/4 inch. The cufflinks have a combined weight of 9.3 grams. They are signed "Hecho en Mexico" in a circle around what I believe are the letters "DF" and the maker's mark letters of "VS", and are hallmarked "925" in the center of the circle. The D. F. mark is for Distrito Federal (Federal District of the city of Mexico) and indicates that the earrings were made in Mexico City. The cufflinks are pre-eagle and would have been made before 1948. I was unable to identify the VS maker's mark.

These lovely cufflinks would make a great gift for the Mexican silver lover. They are unisex in style and could be worn by either a man or a woman. The cufflinks are in very good vintage condition. Being handmade, they exhibit variations that would not be present in machine-made pieces. There is some patina to the backs of the cufflinks and to the toggles. One toggle sits at a slight angle when closed, but it doesn't affect the beauty or functionality in any way (photo #3). They are a fab vintage find!
