Steampunk Cufflinks Soldered Antique Southern Railway Uniform Button Vintage Upcycled Mens Cuff Links handmade by Compass Rose Design

Handmade Steampunk cufflinks made with genuine antique brass vintage railway uniform buttons mounted on silver plated cuff links!. These vest buttons, the type visible on the trainman in the photo, have a fabulous patina from actual wear - these buttons date between 1840 and 1960. A great gift for your father, brother, husband, sweetie or train and trolley-admiring friend!

These are sturdy SOLDERED cufflinks - NOT glued like most of the others cufflinks you will see - I use a two step silver soldering method to preserve the quality and integrity of the piece without frying it by applying direct flame like the torch soldering, so there is less burnt metal for a cleaner solder. Guaranteed to last.

The buttons measure about 1/2" - see photos for details! I have also included an image of an original photo showing a railway worker for the Pennsylvania Railroad so you can see the buttons in an original context - as well as another pair of uniform button cufflinks.

A great gift for your father, brother, husband, groomsman, friend, colleague, or boyfriend!

* All items come in a gift box.

The Southern Railway was a US class 1 railroad. It was the product of nearly 150 predecessor lines that were combined, reorganized and recombined beginning in the 1830s, formally becoming the Southern Railway in 1894. It was placed under control of the Norfolk Southern Corporation, along with the Norfolk and Western Railway (N&W), in 1982, and was renamed Norfolk Southern Railway in 1990. (The N&W continued to exist as a subsidiary until 1997.)
