These lovely Art and Crafts Era Silver cufflinks are in very good ready to wear condition. The Silver flower design to the front is really charming! The repousse work is free of any damage, and catches the light beautifully. The Labradorite or Rainbow Moonstone gems are also in good condition, with no chips or cracks. There is a little wiggle in the gems but they are in no danger of falling out or being lost.
The backs or fastenings are marked C.V.C Larsen and Co (or "CVCL"), although the fronts more closely resemble the work of the very well renowned maker Skonvirke, and there is a visible solder mark joining the two parts. This would not be seen when worn. It's quite possible the flower design of the cufflinks was designed and made by Skonvirke, and the CVCL backs were added at a later date. (They look to us like a pair of earrings converted to cufflinks.) Nevertheless they're an extremely stylish and rare piece of Arts and Crafts jewellery, that deserve to be worn and enjoyed. Wear them as they are, or convert them to a dashing pair of earrings, rings or pendants!
