Reversed carved, molded / pressed glass intaglios pay tribute to Queen Nefertiti in this wild and wonderful 1950s vintage Egyptian Revival bracelet and earrings set in antiqued silver tone metal. Five bracelet links are adorned in layered floral, foliage and heart motifs, each prong set in a roped border with dove gray glass intaglios featuring golden busts / profiles of Nefertiti. Connectors are heavily embossed with stripes of flowers and intricate scrolling. A plain fold over clasp secures. Bracelet's reverse employs back bracing. Earrings use intaglios sans peripheral components. They are screw back with back bracing.
The bracelet measures approximately 7 inches x 1 1/2 inches wide with a 1/2 inch profile or height. Earrings are about 1 inch x 3/4 inch. Oval glass cabochons are 25 millimeters x 18 millimeters. Weight of the bracelet and earrings set is a generous 90 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. All glass intaglios free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. All secure within pronged settings. All retain dove gray luminescence and golden Nefertiti profiles. Two of the bracelet ovals have very tiny reverse flea bites that we believe do not affect the overall presentation or value, especially considering age. No dents or improper bends to metal components. Bracelet maintains alignment and connectors retain shape and positions. No pulls or twists. Fold over clasp strong and secure. All soldering and back bracing secure. Earrings screw backs and back bracing strong and secure. Antiqued silver tone finishes intact, fronts and backs. Clean and correct. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
The set is not signed. It has characteristics of a few famous makers but we are unsure of provenance. Circa 1950s.
