Winged Egyptian Revival Brooch with Turquoise Paste StoneWinged Egyptian Revival Brooch with Turquoise Paste StoneWinged Egyptian Revival Brooch with Turquoise Paste Stone

This charming Egyptian revival brooch is in the form of a winged scarab; although the central turquoise glass cabochon is not carved into a beetle it is implied by the overall form of the brooch. The bright turquoise stone is nicely set off by the gilt brass wings which have achieved a nice soft patina.

SIZE: 2-1/8" long x 9/16" high

MARKS: none

AGE: 1920's. This piece most likely dates from shortly after the discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922. Even though similar styles of brooches were popular during earlier, Victorian era, Egyptian revivals the style of hinge dates it as being from no earlier than the 20's.

CONDITION: very good vintage condition. The pin stem is slightly bent and there is a slight kink where one wing joins the central stone, although this is not noticeable when worn. There are also a few flea bites to the stone and a few small dents in the bezel.
