I was drawn to these unusual vintage cufflinks because of their resemblance to Netsuke carvings and my love of Heraclitus from ancient Greece. When not being worn, they will exert their quiet presence as minatures on display. Scholars , metaphysicians, and masters of mysteries, these figures stand one inch tall and measure 3/4 inches across the base. They are stamped with Swank across the back. Each wears a robe, a headpiece and carries a staff and a scroll. Some noticeable wear on the bottom of the base (see last photo), otherwise in very good condition with no chips or cracks. I do not know what they are made of. I bought them at an antique store close out.
