A striking 1920s/1930s Egyptian Revival necklace. This glass beaded necklace is set with a central gold tone metal enameled plaque which has a fringe of multi-coloured beading. The glass beads and the enameling are typical colours of coral and turquoise with black.
The fastening is an embossed pattern box clasp.
Following the opening of Tutankhamen’s tomb in 1922 interest in Pharaonic Egypt strongly influenced jewellery trends in the Art Deco period.
This necklace is a rare piece from the Art Deco era and the colours and design are typical of that Egyptian Revival period of jewellery.
