These Cufflinks are from my range of Postage Stamp Kiwiana jewellery, using real stamps. These Cufflinks are from the 1960 pictorial postage stamp issue and depict the beautiful
Kowhai-ngutu-kaka. I have had these cufflink findings specially made. They are heavy and solid and made to be enjoyed for a lifetime. Silver Plated and made with an acid free image set under hand shaped glass. They come in either round or square and are presented in an elegant cufflink box.
Kowhai-ngutu-kaka - 2d
Issued: 11 July 1960
The name kowhai-ngutu-kaka shows that the Maori recognised the close relationship between this plant and the yellow kowhai, at the same time likening its flowers to the beak of a native parrot, the kaka. A soft woody shrub rarely exceeding 1.8 metres, the kaka beak 'Clianthus puniceus', as it is commonly known, has curved and pointed red flowers about 10 cm long.
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. I have also made a stunning range of cufflinks using the original stamps. Postmarks and variations in stamp issue colours add to the unique nature of the historic and one off piece.
Square 20mm x 20mm
Round 16mm diameter
