ART DECO Egyptian Scarab Pin

Metal and Black Glass WINGED SCARAB PIN. This interesting and somber beauty may have been used as fashion or as mourning jewelry. Circa the 1920's. Style is early 20th century Egyptian Revival with Art Deco elements.

The discovery and highly publicized opening of King' Tut's tomb in the 1920's created a new demand for Egyptian designs. This second boom is not to be confused with the Egyptian Revival of the 19th century. Many of the 1920's pieces will have an art deco influence such as the geometric decoration on the metal wings of this scarab pin.

Pin secures under an open c-clasp. Slight wear as pictured. Condition is very good.
