These cufflinks are made from real Irish postage stamps issued in Ireland in 1944 to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the death of Michael O Cleary, a Franciscan brother who was a poet, an antiquary before taking holy orders. The caption in Gaelic means 'to the glory of God and the honour of Ireland'. These stunning green cufflinks would be perfect for anyone with an interest in Irish history, the Irish language or a keen philatelist, or a 74th birthday for a dapper gent.
1.5cm square face /Silver plated brass/ presented in a gift box/3rd stamp and card explains the stamp's history.
