These are reproduction Siam silver and niello fan cufflinks. Siam is Thailand now and in the 30's they made sterling and enamel jewelry that was later copied in the 1960's and 70's by Japanese companies. Your set of cufflinks was made in the 1960's. This set has a value of under $20 us dollars or $14 GBP.
