Art Deco Egyptian Revival Necklace
Ornate metal and glass beaded Egyptian Revival necklace with a large suspension featuring a winged scarab surrounded by red, dark blue and sky blue glass cabochons set on an openwork shield-shaped bronzed metal plate. These colours are deliberately chosen to emulate those of carnelians, lapis lazuli and turquoise that are traditionally often found in ancient Egyptian jewellery.
With five drops in alternate colours spaced around the lower part of the pendant, the central one with an Egyptian maiden carved into the glass.
The necklace has an unusual fastener incorporating the final bead.
A real Art Deco piece, mid 1920’s and around 47 cm long, the pendant having a length of approximately 16.5 cm from the bale to the tip of the lowest drop.
