nlad869-1920s Egyptian Revival Brass & Faience Bead necklace

A stunning fringed necklace made of brass beads and links and turquoise and coral faience beads in the ancient Egyptian style. Circa 1925 - 1930. Egyptian style was all the rage after the discovery of King Tut's tomb in the early 1920s and if you like Egyptian Revival, it doesn't get much better than this! I have seen this set in my reference books so I was thrilled to acquire it. The necklace consists of brass links at the top of the collar with alternating rows of turquoise and coral faience cylinder beads. Small brass beads dangle at the end. 16 inches with 2 inch fringe. In extraordinary condition for its age, not one bead missing, no corrosion or verdigris

Faience beads were used by the ancient Egyptians. The gilded brass resembles the high karat gold the Egyptians used. Having seen much ancient Egyptian jewelry in museums, I think the maker of this gorgeous necklace did an excellent job in mimicking the real thing
