This is a very large antique Egyptian faience scarab pendant in an unmarked 900 silver setting. The setting tests positive for silver content slightly below sterling grade and is estimated to be 900 grade silver. The scarab is carved in full body very high relief. The underside of its base is inscribed with hieroglyphics.
This pendant measures 1.75" (excluding the bail) x 1.375" and is almost 1" thick. It weighs 23.3 gr.
Condition is good.
I have seen many scarab jewelry pieces but none of this size. This is one impressive bug.
