Later & Sons Art Nouveau Cufflinks

Larter & Sons Art Nouveau cufflink, circa 1900.

Larter & Sons created cufflinks and other gentleman's jewelry during the late 19th century and through much of the 20th century. They were a prolific maker. Their output ranged from fine gold and gem-set cufflinks to less expensive, but well made, links and dress sets crafted in base metal. As with their equally prolific competitor Krementz & Co., the longevity of Larter & Sons was in large part attributable to the firm's prescience in adapting to changing fashion and economic conditions.

The brief efflorescence of the Art Nouveau style in the early 1900s was one such fashion change. Although Larter & Sons was not a major proponent of the new style, the firm created a small, but noteworthy, collection of bean-back cufflinks in the Art Nouveau taste. These cufflinks are admired for their richly detailed, graphic quality and subtle, somewhat restrained use of the Art Nouveau idiom.

The leonine cufflinks pictured at the top of this post are a wonderful example with whiplash curves and tight scrolls flowing through the jungle vines and lion's tail. Below are several more of the Art Nouveau cufflinks created by Larter & Sons.

Larter "Flowing Grape Vine" cufflinks, circa 1900.

Nature was an important source of inspiration for Art Nouveau designers. Grape vines with their sinuous, entwining tendrils and large, lobed leaves were a natural (bad pun intended) theme. Note the manner in which the grape vine forms the border of the cufflink. Decorated, flowing borders that are an integral part of the overall design are characteristic of the Art Nouveau cufflinks created by Larter, Krementz and other makers.

Larter "Good Luck" cufflinks, circa 1900.

This final Larter cufflink abounds with symbols of good fortune - a jumbled mélange of a horseshoe, wishbone and four-leaf-clover. The twisting stem of the clover flows organically into the curving border. The wishbone is partially hidden by the horseshoe and almost disappears where it meets the scrolling border. One of the delights of Larter Art Nouveau cufflinks is that they are richly detailed. Each time you closely examine one, you see something that you missed before.

Krementz & Co., Cufflink Maker to the World

Krementz & Co., Newark, New Jersey.

Last month I wrote about the double bean-and-post cufflinks created by Krementz & Co. in the years around 1900. Founded in the 1860s by the eponymous George Krementz, Krementz & Co. was a leader in the creation of fine cufflinks and other gentleman's accessories. In many ways the story of Krementz & Co. is the history of the American jewelry industry over the past 150 years.

In 1912 by the Newark Board of Trade published Newark, the City of Industry with the intent of showing "the metropolis of New Jersey not as it was, and not as it some day may be, but as it is." Following is an excerpt from the publication describing the innovative spirit of Krementz & Co. I have added several photographs below to illustrate points in the excerpt: the photographs are not part of the original publication

Krementz & Company

In no branch of skilled industry perhaps in the world, have more rapid advances been made than in the jewelers' art, and the industrial pursuits of a kindred nature. In former years, especially for the finer and more artistic productions in these lines, the American people were compelled to look to Europe for their jewelry supplies, but to-day Europeans look to America, to Newark, which manufactures fully seven-eighths of all the jewelry in the whole United States, and is noted for its beauty of designs, excellence of workmanship and highest standards.

Krementz Art Nouveau cufflink, circa 1900.

One of the more prominent concerns devoted to this important industry, which has done much toward placing Newark to the front as a manufacturer of jewelry and well worthy of more than passing mention is that of Krementz & Co., located at 49 Chestnut Street, with branch offices at 286 Fifth Avenue, New York City and 722 Shreve Building, San Francisco, Cal., was established in 1868 by George Krementz and Julius A. Lebkuecher, which partnership has continued to the present date and has developed into one of the largest and best known firms engaged in the manufacturing of fine 14 karat gold and platinum jewelry, the line being probably the most extensive and complete one of fine jewelry made under one roof.

To give an idea of the magnitude of the Krementz productions, their wares consist of about forty different lines of jewelry, of which the following are the most important:

Ladies' jewelry — Brooch pins, veil pins, necklaces, lavalliers, bar and handy pins, bangles and bracelets, lorgnons, soutoirs, etc.
Men's jewelry — Scarf pins, sleeve links, vest buttons, studs, chains, fobs, match boxes, tie clasps.

Krementz & Co. are also the manufacturers of Krementz collar buttons, which enjoy a national reputation; in fact, are known the world over, and are made in 18 karat, 14 karat, and 10 karat gold and 14 karat rolled gold plate. One of the latest achievements of this concern is its new patented Bodkin fastener which it uses on mother-of-pearl vest buttons and studs for evening dress. While these mother-of-pearl dress sets for gentlemen are much in vogue now and finding a very ready sale, this new Bodkin attachment has given a very material impetus to the popularity of this line.

Krementz Bodkin-style shirt studs.

The very newest of its creation is the making of the bean and post of a gentleman's cuff button of one single piece of metal. This feature has greatly increased the output of men's cuff buttons.

The richness, strength, durability and beauty of style and finish of the jewelry which this establishment turns out, are marvelous. A firm and unalterable determination from the start to use nothing but the best and purest among materials, to employ artists of the highest order, and workmen of skill and character, it has built upon this foundation an industry of grandeur and promise.

The illustration shown above of the Krementz building gives an idea of the large space and facilities required in the manufacture of the various products, while in the neighborhood of three hundred skilled workers are continuously employed to conduct this immense business.

Krementz Doubles

Krementz Egyptian Princess cufflink, circa 1900.

In 1866 George Krementz founded the venerable jewelry firm Krementz & Company.  Over the next 125 years the firm was involved in nearly every aspect of jewelry manufacture - from costume to fine jewelry, colored gemstones to colorful enamels, cufflinks to tiaras.  The jewels created by Krementz & Company were retailed by carriage trade jewelers like Tiffany & Company, as well as small town, mom-and-pop jewelry stores throughout North America.

Krementz Roaring Lion cufflink, circa 1900.

Among the more captivating of the firm's creations are the "Krementz doubles". Victorian cufflinks often consisted of beautifully decorated oval fronts attached to smaller oval backs with a curved bridge. The oval backs somewhat resembled a small beans, so these cufflinks came to be known as "bean backs". Unfortunately, the bean-shaped backs were often left unadorned or merely engraved with the wearer's initials. This left the backs looking somewhat plain and unfinished.

Around 1900 to remedy this situation Krementz & Co. introduced a small collection of figural cufflinks with decorated backs. The backs replicated on a smaller scale the design of the fronts or were decorated with a similar theme. Known as "Krementz doubles" these cufflinks reflected the firm's passion for innovative and imaginatively designed jewels. An example of a decorated bean back is pictured below.

Reverse of Roaring Lion cufflink.

Krementz doubles were created for only a brief period around 1900. The cufflinks are beautifully designed, richly detailed, and impeccably crafted. They are somewhat rare and highly desirable. This note illustrates some of the Krementz doubles I have had the pleasure of working with. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Krementz Native American cufflink, circa 1900.

Krementz doubles are figural cufflinks. That is, they featured wonderful reliefs of roaring lions, mermaids, writhing serpents and other subjects drawn from fantasy and nature. I have not yet come across a Krementz double embellished with an abstract or merely decorative pattern. This cufflink of a Native American in song is a nice example illustrating richness and artistry of the designs.

Krementz leonine double cufflink, circa 1900.

Among Victorian and early 20th century cufflink makers roaring, menacing lions were a favorite subject . Krementz & Co. was no exception. In this note I have illustrated two Krementz doubles with dramatic images of roaring lions - the 3/4 profile lurking in the grass pictured above and the fierce full-faced version illustrated earlier in this post. At the end of this note is a third leonine cufflink, this one created by another eminent cufflink maker of the early 1900s, Link & Angell.

Mermaid and Swan cufflink, circa 1900.

In the years around 1900, the free flowing, otherworldly designs of Art Nouveau flourished and Krementz & Co. was one of the first American jewelry makers to embrace the new style. It is not surprising that Krementz doubles often reflected the prevailing enthusiasm for Art Nouveau design as seen in the wonderful Mermaid and Swan cufflink illustrated above. The Egyptian Princess cufflink illustrated at the top of this post offers another striking example. In other doubles the Art Nouveau influence is more subtle, often seen in the flowing hair of the subjects or in the foliage and wind blown grasses in the background. It is not mere coincidence that the short-lived reigns of the Art Nouveau style and Krementz doubles were largely coincident.

 Krementz serpent cufflinks, circa 1890.

This final example of a Krementz double features entwined rattle snakes. Among the Victorians entwined or coiled snakes were symbols of good fortune and long life. I suspect this interpretation may not apply when the snakes are venomous rattlers. The influence of Art Nouveau is seen in the way the scaly bodies of the two snakes form the outer edge cufflink, as well as in the sinuous vines that twists around the bodies of the snakes. As with all Krementz doubles the scene is beautifully and richly rendered.

Link & Angell double cufflink, circa 1900.

Krementz & Co. was not the only maker of figural cufflinks with decorated bean backs. Pictured above is a leonine example created by Link & Angell, another fine jewelry maker. In fact, I am not certain that Krementz was the first cufflink maker to employee decorated bean backs: the origin and first use is yet to be discovered. But, what is clear is that Krementz & Co.with its passion for innovation and beautiful design was the leading maker and populariser of these captivating cufflinks during the early 1900s.

Happy New Year!

Elegantly festive cufflinks from the Jazz Age.

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone has enjoyed the best of the holidays and is looking forward to a healthy and prosperous New Year.

2014 will be an exciting year here at the Antique Cufflink Gallery. The gallery is moving to a seaside village north of Boston. Although I love the mountains and woods of New Hampshire and Vermont, I am equally (if not more) fond of the sea and the rocky coasts of New England. I am looking forward to the change of scenery. New contact information for the gallery is as follows:

Arthur Anderson
PO Box 1448
Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA 01944

603 674-8678

In addition to the move, the antique and estate cufflink gallery is growing with many new additions from the Art Deco, Art Nouveau and Victorian eras. I will also be adding recent acquisitions to the antique stickpin and brooch galleries. But, just as important, as things settle down here in the new location I will have more time to pursue my first love, researching and writing about the history, artistry and design of antique cufflinks. 2014 is going to be a very good year!

I hope everyone enjoys the best of the New Year!

The Exuberant Cufflinks of L. Fritzsche

With the holidays just around the corner visions of glittering Christmas tree ornaments, shimmering silver tinsel and lacy frost growing on cold windows come to mind. In this spirit this note celebrates the glittering cufflinks of one of the lesser known cufflink makers of the early 20th century.

L. Fritzsche "exuberantly geometric" cufflinks, circa 1925.

L. Fritzsche & Co. created gold jewelry in the early decades of the 20th century. Based in Newark, New Jersey, the firm was founded by Lebrecht Fritzsche sometime before 1910 and is last mentioned in the trade press in the early 1940s. Beyond that we know little more about Lebrecht Fritzsche and the company he founded ... except for the wonderful cufflinks his firm created during the 1920s and 1930s.

Fritzsche cufflinks have an exuberant, inventive sense of geometry. They glitter with playful, myriad motifs arranged in beautifully balanced designs (see above). The cufflinks succeed in being richly detailed without appearing cluttered - they are captivating without being overwhelming. In short, Fritzsche cufflinks exemplify the early Art Deco ideals of rich ornamentation and balanced, orderly design.

L. Fritzsche marquise and diamond cufflinks, circa 1925.

The production of the Fritzsche firm was limited compared to the more prolific cufflink makers of the period - Wordley, Allsopp & Bliss, Carrington & Co. and Charles Keller. But, like other lesser known "small batch" makers (William Huger Co. and Hans Brassler, from a decade earlier, come to mind), what L. Fritzsche & Company lacked in numbers the firm more than made up for in artistry and design.

Fritzsche cufflinks have a unique look, an inescapable beauty that with a little practice is immediately recognized.  In a way the scarcity of Fritzsche cufflinks adds to their desirability and charm.

L. Fritzsche "Racing Comet" cufflinks, circa 1925.

Fritzsche, like other Art Deco cufflink makers, drew inspiration from a number of sources. Fritzsche designs ranged from the abstract and purely geometric to nature-inspired themes rendered in a distinctly Art Deco manner.

The Art Deco era was enthralled with speed.  Fast cars, record breaking airplane flights and luxurious ocean liners all reflected a passion for acceleration, travel and adventurously challenging the limits.  Comets racing in from the far reaches of the universe came to symbolize the frenetic wanderlust of the period.   In the above Fritzsche cufflink dazzling diamond-set comets dart across the night sky as stars blur in the background.  The comets are rendered in a stylized form that anticipates the Op Art of later decades.

L. Fritzsche foliate and floral cufflinks, circa 1925.

This final pair of Fritzsche cufflinks is an Art Deco interpretation of earlier Edwardian designs.  During the Edwardian period (circa 1900 to 1915) jewels often featured beautifully engraved, airy confections of flowers and foliage surrounded by intricate scroll and floral borders.

The above Fritzsche cufflink reimagines the earlier Edwardian designs adding a distinctly Art Deco flavor.  The floral/foliate design in the center is now stylized and bold, not flowing and lacy, while the delicate borders have been replaced with a primitive geometric pattern that reflects the Art Deco interest in tribal arts and distant cultures.  The wonderful thing about antique cufflinks is that the designs from both periods - Edwardian and Art Deco - are equally captivating.

I hope everyone enjoys the best of the holidays and that this brief note
on the glittering cufflinks of L. Fritzsche & Company has added
to the spirit and joy of the season.

The above and other fine cufflinks can be found
in the Antique Cufflink Gallery.
