The Thebes Scarab Pendant: an archaeological revival gold and enamel scarab brooch/pendant, by Robert Phillips, set to the centre with a raised scarab rendered in deep red guilloché enamel with black enamel detail, between a pair of finely modelled rearing gold cobras with black enamel decoration, suspended from a detachable gold and black enamel coiled cobra suspensory loop, terminating with a later cabochon garnet-set gold canopic jar-shaped drop, glazed compartment to reverse, detachable brooch fitting, circa 1865, measuring approximately 7×3.5cm including pendant bail, in fitted case by Phillips, 23 Cockspur St, London, gross weight 27.2grams.

A magnificent pendant by Robert Phillips, c. 1865. Revivalist jewellery, recalling Ancient Egyptian, Greco-Roman, and Renaissance styles, was very popular in the nineteenth century and Robert Phillips was one of London’s most important revivalist jewellers. This particular pendant is created in the Egyptian revival style, featuring an amalgam of Ancient Egyptian motifs such as the scarab, the cobra, and the jar and fan shapes. About two years after the creation of this piece, Phillips won a gold medal at the 1867 Exposition Universelle. This significant and important piece can be worn as either a pendant or a brooch.
