Vintage Guy Gilles Vidal Brutalist Cufflinks in Silver Plated Pewter

$295per set

About

Handsome pair of circa 1970 Guy Gilles Vidal cufflinks, Brutalist style in silver plated pewter. Signed and in good vintage condition. What a handsome pair of cufflinks by Canadian Montreal-based jewelry maker Guy Gilles Vidal. These wonderful cufflinks are circa late 1960s to early 1970s and of an abstract Brutalist design seemingly of a stylized tree. Vidal developed his own formula for pewter in which he cast his pieces, which were then silver or gold-plated. This pair is silver plated with black tarnished effect which brings out the roughness of the background and makes the smooth lines of the stylized tree stand out. Vidal was in production around the same time as his peer and celebrated modernist Robert Larin who was also based in Montreal. Although less celebrated than Larin it is widely acknowledged with the jewelry Community that Vidal’s designs were more sophisticated and had a more delicate look. This pair is a marvelous example of his work showing Vidal’s ability to give his pieces the look and feel of silver and they are in good vintage condition. There are minor scratches to the smooth silver-plating as you would expect for their age. These cufflinks should grace your wrists! Cufflink Size: Height – 7/8 inch Width – 1 inch Depth – 1/8 inch Weight – .33 ounce Boxed Size: Height – 2 inches Width – 9 inches Depth – 5.5 inches Weight – Under one pound.
