A mid 20th century pair of Israeli sterling cufflinks with iridescent Roman glass; each is about 1-3/8" long x 1/2" wide; probably c. 1960s; one of the cufflinks has a small dent in the silver and a tiny chip in the glass, otherwise fine condition; marked: "925."

"Roman glass jewelry was part of an 'archaeology craze' in the Israeli society of the 1960s.  Archaeology (mainly Biblical archaeology) was a means of creating collective memory and national narrative based on a shared heritage." (from "Jewellery in Israel, Multicultural Diversity 1948 to the Present" by Iris Fishof, p. 47)
