A genuine Egyptian jewel, this vintage 800 silver brooch was likely a souvenir from a trip to Cairo. At the center is openwork imagery of the sphinx in front of the 3 pyramids of Giza. A smiling sun and palm tree complete the design.
The centerpiece is cleverly mounted like a coin in the lacy edge pin.
On the back are a standard pin mechanism and a bail.
Measurements: over 1-3/4" in diameter excluding the bail
Hallmarks: the pin stem, bail, front bead, and back of the centerpiece are stamped with Egyptian touchmarks for 800 silver. I believe it is from Alexandria.
Excellent condition with some hard-to-reach tarnish in the lacy details.
