If you’re feeling a Hemingway-esque for your next wedding or special occasion and don’t want to go with a boring standard cufflink, you may want to hit the Shift Key Antique Typewriter Cufflinks currently on sale at Etsy. These ‘links ship from the UK and resemble an old-fashioned typewriter shift key from the Antique Remington Portable Typewriter, a machine that was manufactured between 1920 and 1925.
The keys have been cleaned and polished but still have an aged, almost-century-old look that you’re going to like. The stems and bars are in silver-colored metal and the links are presented in a gift box. When the package arrives, some of the keys may have a worn look, but that’s to be expected since they’ve been pressed (probably) a million times over the years.
