A must for any dapper chap! This pair of cufflinks is covered in vintage red and white Belgian stamps and brown envelope paper. They measure just under ½ inch (15mm) wide. All are one of a kind, made from collaging various bits of vintage paper onto off-cuts of wood and board that otherwise would be thrown away. The circles are laser cut and sealed at the edges. Each pair is then given between 2-3 coats of varnish for protection and a super glossy finish. They are then firmly glued onto high quality silver coloured cuff links.
