From the late 1950s comes this delightful set of men’s formal cufflinks and tie tack made by the jewelers of Swank, Inc. Subtle bluish lavender glass serves as the central piece of each cufflink and the tie tack. The glass is set into silver-tone metal. The gleaming quality of the glass shimmers in each item of this men’s jewelry set.
This men’s accessory set is in great vintage condition, free of marks and scratches. The silver-tone metal is also in good shape, with only minor spotting on the backside of the cufflinks. The cufflink bars as well as the closing piece and chain of the tie tack work well. Interestingly enough, the set comes in a black case that bears the name “Sabre” on the inside front cover, yet the hallmark “Swank” appears on the backside of each cufflink. For being approximately 60 years of age, the box has weathered well, but it does have the remnants of a price tag on its bottom. Because of the variance in names between cufflinks and box, it remains unclear whether the box is the original one that came with the cufflink and tie tack set.
For that special man in your life, be it for his birthday, anniversary or other important occasion, this cufflinks and tie tack set would make for a delightful gift. If you collect vintage men’s accessories, then this set would serve as a great addition to your collection.
