1950s Phyllis Sklar American Modernist Sterling Silver Cufflinks

$350

About

1950's sterling silver American modernist cufflinks created by Phyllis Sklar of Provincetown, Massachusetts. Cufflinks measure 7/8" by 5/8". Signed Phyllis, Sterling on reverse. In good condition, showing signs of wear conducive with age. The following was taken from the POBA website with thanks: Born in New York City and growing up in Manhattan, Phyllis was surrounded by the lively arts and music communities in which she lived. She launched her career as an artist when she founded Phyllis HandWrought Jewelry in 1955 New York’s Greenwich Village section of Manhattan. There she was powerfully affected by the burgeoning arts and music scene of “the Village.” During these years, Phyllis met her future husband, local artist and musician, Israel Sklar. Izzy also shared a natural talent in designing and making jewelry and joined Phyllis in operating the studio/store. At their wedding in 1960, noted jazz musician PeeWee Russell served as their best man. Many of their devoted customers and fans in Greenwich Village urged the Sklars to open a store in Provincetown, MA, by then a famous and well-established arts colony. Phyllis and Izzy loved the creative energy and sense of community there and moved their lives and work to this New England coastal town in 1961, where their new studio and space soon became and remains a Provincetown landmark.
