This fabulous pectoral depicts a winged scarab representing the dung beetle, an extremely important symbol to the ancient Egyptians. The pectoral itself measures over 6 inches wide and was made by Thomas Fattorini, LTD. It features enameled accents and a central royal blue thermoset insert representing the body of the beetle. The chain is 26 inches long. There is a very small bit of plating loss on the back of the pectoral as seen in the photo. The price is adjusted to reflect this. This is a copy of a pectoral that was found in Tutankhamun's tomb; the inlays in the original were lapis lazuli, cornelian turquoise, and green feldspar; the golden disc represents the sun. Approximate time frame is the 18th dynasty (c. 1336-1327 B.C.) This faithful reproduction dates to the mid-1970's; this is also a book piece and is features in "Classic American Costume Jewelry, Vol. 2" by Jacqueline Rehmann.
