Very OLD Egyptian Revival 1920's Blue Faience SCARAB Bezel set in STERLING Charm

� � � A wonderful old charm that I believe is from the 1920s. It is made of faience, a traditional pottery with a turquoise glaze in the shape of a scarab. It is bezel mounted in Sterling Silver. At the top where it is paler blue, the glaze has not quite taken onto the ceramic, which is a great sign that it is an authentic piece. Also, the amount of wear and crazing to the glaze help authenticate its antiquity.�

It most likely would have been made in Egypt and was probably made during the Egyptian revival fashion of the Art Deco era. The scarab beetle has hieroglyphics on the base, although they are rather worn and difficult to make out clearly.� �

It measures approx 1" long (including the jump ring) x approx 9/16" wide x approx 5/16" high. It weighs 3.8 grams. There is a hole drilled through from front to back, indicating it could have been intended for use as a bead to be strung on a necklace rather than be set in metal.� �

What a wonderful splash of color to liven up any outfit, can be worn as a pendant on a necklace or added to a charm bracelet.�

It will arrive in a tiny gold or silver gift box.� �
