Gold tone cufflinks with black line image of a sandpiper on faux mother of pearl. Sandpipers are small but fiesty little shorebirds found naturally amongst the oysters that generate mother of pearl. As the old French adage says, “What grows together, goes together.” The mother of pearl in these cufflinks is actually a type of plastic called celluloid, something that unfortunately is a threat to sandpipers and other birds that thrive in our waters. Here is the perfect opportunity to protect our shores - with poise and class. They measure 3/4 x 3/4 x 1 inches each and weigh ¼ oz. together. Found in Amsterdam, mid 20th century.
