1920s Egyptian Revival Bracelet
DATE: Egyptian Revival, c.1920
This beautiful 1920s bracelet features two powerful protective symbols: what appears to be the Hamsa, an open palmed right hand, that traces its origins back to ancient Carthage (or possibly Mesopotamia, it's hard to know) and is said to ward off the evil eye; secondly the Egyptian goddess Wadjet, depicted as a winged cobra. Wadjet was the patron and protector of all Egypt, and closely associated with the land - sometimes depicted as a snake with a woman's head. The piece is modelled in in silver gilt, with colourful enamelled detailing.
