Early Guy Vidal Cufflinks - Textural Squares

Early Guy Vidal Cufflinks - Textural Squares

Regular price $195.00 Sale

Early and Large Guy Vidal cufflinks with a textural globular design. These cufflinks are highly sculpted and wonderfully abstract. This is one of Guy Vidal's earliest works of wearable art and is possibly one of a kind.  Absolutely Striking, great piece by a wonderful Canadian designer.

Vidal was a true master at sculptural pieces of wearable art, his work contains depth, texture and stunning stylized design. Often regarded as the best of the Canadian Modernists of the 1960-70's due to his unique and highly stylized designs. His earliest designs were signed by marker.

This piece has been verified by Guy Vidal himself. Here is a portion of the email we shared. :

Guy Vidal
"I took a look at your jewelry and I can see the signature made with a marker.
These pieces are done at the very beginning of my career, in the early 60's, and at the time, I did not have yet a hallmark stamp to identify my work.
That is why I did signed my work with an ink marker for a while.
So the jewelry are very rare pieces because it is one of a kind as at the time I was doing the pieces directly on a hot ceramic bed while the metal was still hot and workable with a wooden tool. The first series I made were all one of a kind because I did not know how to reproduce them in molds yet.
I had found this particular method of working the metal with wooden sticks and yet I was making myself, I was learning the trade of pewtersmith."

Hallmarked in marker (his earliest signature) "G. Vidal"
