#8756E#8720E-#8720

Leonore Doskow opened her jewelry studio in Philadelphia in the early 1930s where she developed an affluent and celebrity-laden clientele. The studio was relocated to New York City in 1936 and then to Montrose, New York in the 1960s, where it is still located. Leonore did all the designing for the firm while the business operations were first handled by her husband David and now by David, Jr.

The firm still makes cuff links, with a focus on initialed pieces, well designed silver and gold pieces as well as sports related pieces. http://pages.captainhucksbooty.com/3559/PictPage/1920704070.html or if you are into American football, try to find their current silver and gold football which is well made and one of the best looking pieces of football jewelry I’ve ever seen.

In addition to the sporting and basic designs, Leonore produced many unusual and whimsical pieces. She did pieces resembling the Arts and Crafts school http://pages.captainhucksbooty.com/3559/PictPage/1920704071.html as well being an early user of overlays on silver for the animal lover. http://pages.captainhucksbooty.com/3559/PictPage/1920704063.html

Leonore Doskow is a quality American jewelry maker that has had a broad distribution. Which means that you have a good chance of finding good wearing pieces at yard sales and flea markets. Collect her rarer pieces and enjoy wearing the others, especially if you are into sports.

Hans Hansen Cuff Links

 


This pair of vintage Danish Hans Hansen sterling cufflinks typifies
what is expected from the best of Scandanavian design: bold, simple
beautifully conceived and executed. Marked “925SHaH DENMARK.”

Hans Hansen open a goldsmith shop and smithy in 1906 in Kolding, Denmark, where he had been trained as a silversmith at C.M. Cohr which was well know for its flatware. Hans Hansen slowly became one of the premier silverware and jewelry firms in Denmark. Almost all of the initial designs were by Hans Hansen. His son, Karl Gustav Hansen was the next major designer for the Hansen firm. Karl Gustav, similar to many of the major Danish jewelry designers was, in addition to being trained as a silversmith, was trained as a sculptor. I believe that the training of so many Danish silversmiths had in the fine arts certainly raised the overall design quality of the Danish pieces through at least World War II. Unfortunately, there, as well as most places, the cross over of fine arts to either applied arts or sciences seems to have been relegated to the “who cares” let’s do business mentality.

The sculptural Hansen cuff links are considerably different from the pieces originated by the Georg Jensen smithy. Generally, the Hansen pieces are more geometric as opposed to being derived from nature. Balls in a cup http://pages.captainhucksbooty.com/3559/PictPage/1920869450.html is particularly interesting when compared with the Jensen florals. I feel that the quality of Hansen pieces from the 1960s-80s were the best being produced (in bulk) in Denmark. The pieces were cleanly done, well designed and solid, http://pages.captainhucksbooty.com/3559/PictPage/1920703974.html.

Hans Hansen pieces generally have as a makers mark a superimposed double “H.” Some later pieces may have the name fully spelled out and certain pieces from the “Future” line, designed by Karl Gustav, were marked HaH.

Hans Hansen was taken over by the Royal Copenhagen group in the early 1990s. While the Hans Hansen name has disappeared, many of its designs are still being produced under Royal Copenhagen’s premier silver name Georg Jensen. Certainly, the addition of the Hansen geometric sculptural pieces was a great complementary addition to the softer Jensen natural lines. While I hate to see great design companies disappear, it is nice when their best designs have a chance to live on outside of the history book or museum.

I enjoy figural cuff links as they range from Greco-Roman classics done as cameos, from hardstone http://pages.captainhucksbooty.com/3559/PictPage/903295.htmlto Wedgwood http://pages.captainhucksbooty.com/3559/PictPage/1920709692.html or italios through the Art Nouveau period devils and ladies http://pages.captainhucksbooty.com/3559/PictPage/1921020567.html continuing through Marilyn Monroe and the Vargas girls as well as many 1960’s cuff links that are currently frowned upon due to their now politically incorrect postures.

Beyond the basic figural are the more whimsical pieces that are my favorites. Whether they are based on mythology http://pages.captainhucksbooty.com/3559/PictPage/903263.htmlor the aggravations of sports. http://pages.captainhucksbooty.com/3559/PictPage/903367.html (yes, this is my favorite pair I have for sale — they resemble how I feel on the golf course — and, if not sold this year, will be my Christmas present to myself). Figurals are always fun to wear and they almost always invite comments, and depending on the piece itself, may lead to quite a discussion.
