    Had a request to post specifically on the eye miniature cufflinks, so here you go!

    These are rare Georgian gold eye miniature cufflinks -- I have never seen another pair in books, museums or anywhere else. One side has a brown eye, and the other has a blue eye with rose-cut diamond tear, indicating these are probably a mourning piece.

    On the back, each side has cypher initials painted on ivory, each with a different colored hair surround. The two sides are joined with their original cufflink mechanisms. I would circa date them to around 1780.
