Egyptian Revival Blue Glass Scarab Necklace

$495

The opulent imagery and mythology of Ancient Egyptian art and artifacts has fascinated Westerners since the earliest archaeological excavations of the pharaoh's tombs. This necklace was fashioned during the twentieth century period known as Egyptian Revival, a period in design marked by its heavy borrowing from the symbolic vocabulary of the Ancient Egyptians. The 18" necklace features a parade of cast blue glass scarabs complete with faux hieroglyphics on the backs.
