This is a pair of B & W Company (Baer & Wilde) snap cufflinks from the art deco era. They are marked: B & W CO. - PAT'D 1923 on one side and KUM-A-PART REGS'T'D on the other side. They are made of a silver base metal that does shows no tarnish or corrosion; I believe the insides are gold plated. The snaps are tight. They are 9/16 inch in diameter. They have an intricate design made by cutting into or etching (?) the metal. Very nice set.Please ask if you have questions. To get shipping charges, use the shipping calculator on this auction page. The shipping weight for this item is approximately 6 ounces from 78962 to your zip code. I will ship the most economical way or Priority Mail -- buyer's choice.

Sorry about the new increased postal rates :( ...bad for eBayers, but I guess high gas prices will increase the price of almost everything. Insurance ($1.65 for up to $50.00 value) is also the buyer's option and highly recommended for breakable items. Shipping charges include Delivery Confirmation on most items. Seller is not responsible for uninsured items or delays in the postal delivery system. International bidders please be aware that sometimes packages take a long time in transit. Items will be packaged carefully to survive the trip through the mail. Payment may be made by check (no holding time except for e-checks through PayPal; they will not let me print a shipping label until the check clears.), money order, or PayPal -- whichever is most convenient for the buyer. Returns accepted within 7 days if item is not as described. Auction price will be refunded, but does not include shipping / handling. I will happily return all positive feedback when buyer is satisfied. Please take a look my other auction listings for some more interesting items.
