How cool is this Art Deco Egyptian Revival Pendant? We are in love with the detailed enamel on the mummy pendant and of course, the secret pencil! This piece dates to the 1920s and features a small Eyptian Revival Style silver Mummy, possibly King Tut, pendant which measures 31 mm long, not including the bail, and 11 mm at its widest point. The mummy is decorated with beautiful white, blue, turquoise, green and maroon enamel. The sides of the mummy have symbols which appear to be hieroglyphics. The best part about the mummy pendant is the secret pencil. When the bail is pulled on, a small pencil expands from the bottom of the mummy. When in full extension, it measures 57 mm. There is only a small bit of lead left in the pencil but, it still writes! The mummy pendant hangs from a sterling silver chain. There is a drop at the center of the chain which measures 3.75 inches long. The remainder of the chain is 26 inches long. There is a clasp at the bottom of the drop of the chain which attaches to the mummy. The mummy could be replaced by another pendant if desired. The clasp of the chain is stamped sterling. The bail of the mummy is stamped 800 for the grade of the silver. In total, this piece weighs 8.5 grams.
