Description

DATE: Art Deco, c. 1920

Cool antique scarab beetle charm dating from the 1920s. The British archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922 triggering a wave of Egyptomania that influenced the Art Deco movement, and writers such as Agatha Christie and Thomas Mann. Egyptian Revival jewellery came back into fashion, and demand for Egyptian-themed pieces such as this one boomed. Crafted in silver, it features a scarab beetle poised atop an oval cartouche with deep royal blue enamelling on its back.
