Black Square

Unusual Vintage Cufflinks by Scholz & Lammel, Around 1960

This beautiful pair of cufflinks in a post-war modernist design was created in the years after World War 2. At that time in Germany, the art and crafts preferred the non-representational abstraction. Therefore, the large, square faces of our cufflinks show a composition of geometric motifs, which almost look like different sized sheets of origami paper in black and red. They are made in matte enamel and delight with their beautiful contrasting colours. Despite the geometry of the pair, the slight assymetries caused by the handwork make the cufflinks appear individual. The backs feature the signet of the Scholz & Lammel company, which employed some of the leading enamel artists of the young Federal Republic of Germany. A striking accessory for the shirt, a stylish pair of the years around 1960.
