Egyptian Revival Necklace
Ornate silver gilt and coloured enamel festoon necklace incorporating a series of Egyptian revival motifs including a pharaoh’s head emerging from a lotus, a pair of sphinxes, many stylised lotus blossoms and a centrally suspended ankh.
Between each of these is a little enamelled cabochon, with all the individual features being linked together in such a way that the whole hangs elegantly from both sides.
The colours, light and dark blue together with red, are chosen to emulate the lapis lazuli, turquoise and carnelian which are most often found in original ancient Egyptian jewellery.
Dating from circa 1910-20, the necklace when opened out has a length of 42 cm. The main central element, from the top of the dark blue enamelled disc to the bottom of the central drop, is approximately 7 cm long.
