Marsh & Company Gold, Oxidized Steel and Cultured Pearl Cufflinks Dress Set

$5,250per set

About

Beautiful, original and highly collectible G.T. Marsh & Company dress set comprised of cufflinks and three matching shirt studs in oxidized steel with round, white cultured pearls and 14K white gold fittings. In the 19th Century, G.T. Marsh, an Australian, traveled with his family to Japan before continuing on several years later to San Francisco. There, he established one of the first galleries of Asian art in the United States - a business that thrived for more than a century before closing in 2001. From the 1930s and into the 1960s, in addition to selling art, Marsh's became known for producing unique jewelry in oxidized steel incorporating such traditional Asian materials as jade, coral and cultured pearls - the latter being a relatively new invention at the time. Marsh's jewelry is highly sought-after today, in part because it is so distinctive: at once elegant and industrial, Western and Asian, Art Deco and strikingly modern. As is typical of Marsh's jewelry, these pieces are unsigned, but their design and excellent workmanship are unmistakable. They come with the original, fitted case. The pieces show only very slight wear; the pearls are unblemished. The original case is in fair condition overall - though remarkably good for its age. Cufflinks measure 16.5 mm square and are set with round, white pearls measuring 7.1 mm in diameter. Torpedo backs are marked "14KT" and "D:B". Shirt studs measure 10.9 mm square and are set with round, white pearls measuring 5.8 mm in diameter. Backs are marked "14KT".
