Large Devil Tail Horse Cufflinks Incolay SIGNED Mythical gold black seahorse Hippocampusis Poseidon Oriental FIsh vintage gift for men

Quantity available: 1
The Hippocampusis a mythological creature shared by Phoenician and Greek mythology. It was also adopted into Etruscan mythology. It has typically been depicted as a horse in its forepart with a coiling, scaly, fish-like hindquarter. The sea-horse appears in Pictish stone carvings in Scotland. The symbolism of the carving (also known as "Pictish Beast") is unknown. It is similar but not identical to Roman sea-horse images, and it is not clear whether this originates from images brought over by the Romans, or had a place in Pictish mythology. These are signed (see photo) and are some of the most unusual and well made cufflinks. I have one other pair signed with the same mark ( still unknown to me).Whoever the maker is, they really make fabulous pieces. What better way to give a gift than something unique and vintage. Here is something for the men or women that have everything! This would be a great idea because it is Vintage and not something you can buy everyday. OR perhaps just a perfect addition to a collection. They may have a little wear ( if any) but they sure have a lot of love that came with them when they were first bought. Boxed for gift giving; gift wrapped on request. ∆ Maker: signed ∆ Material: gold plate and incolay ∆ Size: see photo ∆ Weight: ( based on other cufflinks in comparison) ∆ Condition: Because these are vintage estate piece and are vintage and pre-worn they are not considered new from the factory, please see photos for any wear or light surface scratches that come with age. .Sold as is and priced accordingly.. ∆ Lovely patina!
