    About this item

    Sir Norman Hartnell (1901–1979)
    A Pair of Mid-Century Modern Cufflinks
    Presented in their original box
    Gold plated metal
    Each marked "Hartnell"
    Measure: 2.2 cm x 2.2 cm (each (approx.))

    A pair of interesting mid-century modern cufflinks retailed by Norman Hartnell. Each cufflink marked "Hartnell" to the shaft. Presented in their original, oval-shaped domed box covered with an embroidered black ‘tiger stripe’ patterned fabric. The black satin lining with gilt lettering "Norman Hartnell, London" beneath a crest. The cufflinks with a sunburst pattern over an innovative pierced-through grid. Label within reads "Diamond Cut". 

    The British couturier Sir Norman Hartnell designed and retailed a range of now much sought after costume jewellery to accompany his clothes. Having begun desiging costumes for theatre productions as an undergraduate at Cambridge in the 1920's, Hartnell embarked on a stellar career as a fashion designer. Friends with the group of well-connected socialites who became known as the "Bright Young Things", he designed clothes for stylish débutantes and by the 1930s was dressing royalty. In 1947 he designed Princess Elizabeth's wedding dress for her marriage to Prince Philip and in 1953 received the commission to design her Coronation Gown. These cufflinks date to the late 1950s/early 1960’s, by which time his fashion house had introduced a range of formal but highly fashionable menswear.
