Made with real UK vintage stamps, issued in 1966 as part of the British Birds series. These beautiful cufflinks depict one of the UKs most regognisable and colourful birds, the Blue Tit, resident in our gardens all year round. It was one of the first stamps to be printed in eight colours and the stamp was designed by the distinguished natural history illustrator John Norris Wood.
Each pair of cufflinks is presented in a black cufflink box, with information about the stamp including the country and year of issue, plus details about the actual stamp image. The stamps are set into high quality silver coloured, nickel plated cufflinks (brass base), with hard wearing swivel barrel fittings. They are then covered with a crystal clear resin dome that magnifies and protects the image, making them durable and scratchproof. These stamps are of "mint" quality, meaning they have not been passed through the postal system, so bear no postmark.
Square – cufflink diameter, 20mm, stamp insert diameter 18mm x 18mm square.
