Vintage 40s/50s Atlas Tiger's Eye Scarabs & GF Bracelet/Brooch Demi-Parure
The backs of the scarabs are incised with what is likely meant to evoke the amuletic inscriptions on ancient Egyptian scarabs (thanks to Laura of Metro Retro Vintage for this information!).
The spring ring clasp to the 6 ¾" bracelet is marked "Sterling", while the spring ring at the end of its safety chain is marked "ATLAS 12K GF"; brooch back is marked "12K GF" on a cartouche with a copyright symbol.
According to Cheryl Cassidy's "History of American Jewelry Manufacturers", New York-based Atlas made goldfilled, vermeil, and sterling jewelry through the 1940s into the early 50s.
Brooch, which measures 1 ½" x 7/8", has a safety catch pinstem. Both pieces are in excellent condition.
