Vintage EGYPTIAN REVIVAL Blue Faience Ceramic Bead Necklace
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: Hard to say - C.1980 maybe?
ITEM: An Egyptian Revival necklace of blue pottery beads (aka faience), the tops of a dark turquoise hue in shapes of scarabs, with the backs a very pale turquoise blue with no design at all. Interspersed between the beads are silver colored beads that appears to be just silver colored plastic. No clasp - the piece simply goes over the head.
CONDITION: Very nice beads with no chips or cracks that I can spot. The silver beads doe show wear - so much so that you can see, upon close examination, that the tops of the beads where the pottery has been rubbing, has exposed the plastic content. I think silverplate beads might be nicer so a restringing is probably in order.
SIZE: Bottom pendant measures 1-5/16" x 15/16"; side beads are of various sized but the larges width appears to be about 1/2". Entire length of the necklace is about 29".
FINAL COMMENTS: A very nice looking necklace!
