Amazing Vintage Egyptian Revival Filigree Scarab Bracelet

This vintage silver filigree bracelet features a hand-carved scarab beetle stone set in each link with art nouveau style leaves or hearts to either side of the scarab.

The turquoise-coloured stones appear to be made of Egyptian faience, a pottery like material that’s composed of quartz or sand mixed with various materials and then fired in a kiln. The distinctive turquoise colour of Egyptian faience comes from a copper compound that was frequently added to the mixture.

The bracelet measures 17.5cm x 2.8cm. The closure is an attached pin that slides through both ends of the bracelet.

In ancient Egyptian culture the scarab was a symbol of immortality, resurrection, transformation and protection.

All of the scarabs show as old faience.

Overall in a very good vintage condition.
