A fabulous Art Deco shot glass made from 800 silver.
The front has an applied enamel medallion with a wonderfully detailed depiction of an Egyptian man and camel with a Sphinx, pyramids and sand dunes.
The scene is bordered by a stylized Egyptian Revival geometric design in blue and green enamel, 'Caire' (Cairo) is written at the top.
Measure 1.75" tall, the base has a diameter of 15/16", the top is 1.25", total weight is 24.6 grams.
Marked 800 on the bottom with a tree and crescent hallmark, I believe the piece is German in origin.
Excellent condition, no damage to the enamel, minimal wear overall.
A wonderful addition to any collection of Egyptian Revival.
