Plique-à-Jour Winged Scarab*

Item Description

Large and quite exceptional Egyptian revival silver gilt brooch with a carved lava stone scarab beetle in the centre.

Made in silver gilt, the wide upswept wings are enamelled in a shade of light green at the top, with the trailing feathers plique-à-jour enamelled in darker green shading to pinky-red.

Flanking the scarab on each side is a pair of long-tailed birds,  their finely detailed heads etched in silver gilt and their long tail feathers enamelled in green.

On the reverse, the scarab shows the carving of an Egyptian person holding what appears to be a palm frond.

Marked on the back for 800 silver and with a width of just over 11.5 cm.
