Tiki 1967 New Zealand Postage stamp silver plated cufflinks
These Cufflinks are from my range of Postage Stamp Kiwiana jewellery, using original stamps. These Cufflinks are from the 1960 pictorial postage stamp issue and depict the iconic greenstone Tiki. The cufflink findings are made of welded steel, they are solid of the highest quality. The cufflinks are made with an acid free image set under hand shaped glass. They come in a square setting and are presented presented in an elegant cufflink box.
The greenstone hei-tiki was one of the commonest forms of neck pendant worn by Maori of high rank when Europeans first came to New Zealand. Greenstone is an extremely hard material. I have a range of images available. Stamps issued before 1936 may be reproduced, however those after are subject to copy-write. Hence I have been able to reproduce some stamp images. Postmarks and variations in stamp issue colours add to the unique nature of the historic and one off piece.
