Vintage Mexico Sterling Silver Aztec Mayan Calendar Round Cufflinks - Pre-Eagle - Artist Signed #c882
These wonderful Mexican cufflinks are early pre-Eagle mark pieces and date to circa the 1940s. They are round in shape with chased circular designs of Aztec or Mayan calendars on the fronts. The calendar symbols are raised and shiny silver and stand out against the recessed areas that are oxidized black. They covered with fantastic symbols that give them a textured look. The cufflinks are toggle style with handmade mechanisms. They are beautiful!

The fronts of the cufflinks measure about 11/16 inch in diameter and they have a depth of approximately 3/4 inch. The cufflinks have a combined weight of 8.1 grams. They are signed and hallmarked Sterling, M (for Mexico) and 925 in a circle around the artist's initials GG on the back of both cufflinks. They are also marked "Alpaca" on the toggle portion of each cufflink. Alpaca silver (a metal alloy) is often used for the functional portions of Mexican jewelry for added durability and affordability.

These gorgeous cufflinks would make a great gift for anyone who appreciates fine Mexican silver jewelry. They are unisex in style and could be worn by either a man or a woman. The cufflinks are in excellent vintage condition. Being handmade, they may exhibit slight variations that would not be present in machine-made pieces. They are a marvelous find!
