It's a Mad Mad Mad Men World!


Or at least you can have Mad Men style in the world with this pair of vintage 1960s cuff links from Speidel. The silvertone cuff links feature confetti lucite in a half moon shape. I think these cuff links are a great addition to any wardrobe--a man's or a woman's.

Speidel is probably most associated with watch bands and watches. The company was founded in 1867 in Germany with an initial investment equivalent of $10.00. In 1904, an American branch was launched. During the 1920s, Speidel introduced costume jewelry and sales in watch bands soared due to their use in the military during World War I. During World War II, Speidel converted most of its facilities and started manufacturing cathode ray tubes for radar and other electronic applications. 1n 1951, Speidel began selling identification bracelets. The Photo Ident--an identity bracelet with an expandable wristband and a place for a photo--became an immediate success. In 1956, the company began manufacturing men's jewelry. By the mid 1960s, Speidel's presence in the jewelry industry had grown significantly. The company expanded internationally in the 1970s. In 1997, Speidel was sold to Hirsch Armbaender AG, the leading manufacturer of leather watchbands in Europe. In 2009, Speidel was purchased by Cerce Capital LLC.

History/Backstory: A Vintage Virginia Find.


Condition: Fair. The silvertone on one cuff link shows wear and some of the silvertone has rubbed off and changed color. Please see Photo 4, left pic. The lucite in the other cuff link has cracks. They are not obvious cracks; they become apparent upon closer inspection. Please see Photo 4, right pic. The flaws do not take away from the overall appearance or the mad men madness of the cuff links.


Measurements:

Height: about 1"

Width: about 1 1/2"

Weight: .7 ounces together (on my postal scale)

Colors: Bold Black, Sly Silver, & a dash of Mad Men Mint Green

Packaging: The cuff links will be carefully packaged and shipped via USPS Priority Mail.

Please convo if you prefer a different shipment method, like First Class, First Class International.

I love to combine shipping and always refund postage overages.

Smoke free home.
