Having set out in life to be an archaeologist (I have the degree to prove it!), I dearly love this "Old World" Egyptian Revival look! I am not too sure why I am offering it here and I might shed a tear when it leaves!

This is a great example of Czech jewelry! The Pharaoh (Ramses II?) is molded glass in green and the three dangling beads are incised in bands along the entire three-dimensional cone shape. This has lots of good attributes: The molded glass is by Neiger, Egyptian Revival, but also chimera on either side of Pharaoh, a great size, and dangling incised beads! It ticks lots of boxes!

This style was in response to the discovery of King Tut's tomb by Howard Carter in the early 1920s. They frequently used molded Czech glass from Gablonz in their pieces and you can see many Pharaoh motifs, elephants, pyramids, and so forth in their glass used in necklaces and pins and earrings. The beads here have spatters of green glass over molded white beads that are incised from the tip of the cone to the base. This type of glass is called Peking glass.

Condition is very good on this venerable piece. I detect no chips or nicks in the glass pieces. The metal is a mellow brass color and it has nice patina. The metal work has heft to it. I did not clean it as I prefer its fresh out of the Valley of the Kings tombs look!

The pin has a C-clasp. The pin measures 2 1/2" by 2". That is before you add the dangles! The entire length with the dangles is 4"! Now that is a righteous size and it will not be missed!
