A smart pair of 9ct gold oval cufflinks that were made in 1929 in Birmingham. They have very fine engine turned decoration. Engine Turning, or Guilloché, is a form of decorative engraving that is accomplished with the assistance of an engine. Its origins are rooted in the 18th century when jewellers modified ornamental lathes, or rose engines, to cut metal using a fixed cutter. They are a nice weight too.
