Cuff links with portraits of their daughters

Hallwyl Museum

On Christmas Eve 1872, Walther was given a pair of cuff links by his wife, to complement the breastpin. The lids are adorned with the initial E and open to reveal the portraits of their two daughters, Ebba and Ellen. It was customary to complement the monogram and picture with a lock of hair, although this was not done in these instances. Like the breastpin, the cuff links are of gold plate, blue enamel and foiled rose-cut stones, but these items were made by the Gustaf Möllenborg jewellers in Stockholm.
