  1. Hi Sue, I have a pair of Stratton Arita porcelain cufflinks, I cannot find a picture of the same pair anywhere, is it possible that you tell me anything about them please?

  2. Hi. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you anything about the Arita porcelain range. I have not come across any on my travels. Looking on the web, there are quite a few different styles and price range. My only advice would be to see if you can trace the patent number. Regards Sue

  3. I used to work for Stratton in there design studio as a model/pattern maker,making the first jewellery at design stage,think Stratton was sold to Fermins in hockley
