A late 19th century Egyptian Revival bib collar necklace featuring three gilt brass medallions each artistically enameled with an Egyptian monarch wearing the traditional royal Nemes headdress. Additional medallions decorated in a stylized star and lotus flower motif anchor both sides of this regal lineup, with four lotus-capped marbelized blue art-glass beads dangling from the swagged filigree links, emulating the turquoise so favored by the Ancient Egyptians. It's an elegant and dramatic design creating a festoon collar effect when worn. Measuring a total of 17" long with a drop width of approximately 1 3/4". The enameled medallions measure approximately 1/2" in diameter. Finished with a brass paperclip style chain and the original spring ring clasp. The interest in Egyptian motifs and design began at the end of the 18th century after Napolean's expedition to Egypt in 1798. However, the greatest enthusiasm was sparked later with both the amazing archeological discoveries of the mid 19th century and the opening of the Suez Canal in 1867. Egyptian motifs remained in vogue through the late 19th century fueled by Sarah Bernhardt's protrayal of Cleopatra while bedecked in jewelry by Lalique, up through the 1920s with the discovery of King Tut's tomb. In excellent condition with no chips or cracks to beads or enamel. There is a slight antique patina and some expected wear to the gilt brass finish commensurate with it's age and history, but nothing disfiguring or dark. ❃ More Necklaces and Pendants: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEdenCollective?section_id=13939717&ref=shopsection_leftnav_3 ❃ We are happy to offer layaway.
