A Victorian Egyptian Revival Scarab Brooch

Description

A Victorian egyptian revival scarab brooch, the carved green hardstone scarab set within a gold wire frame to ruby set snakes and enamelled wings set with alternate rose-cut diamonds and rubies, all to a gold mount with engraved reverse and brooch pin fitting, circa 1880,measuring approximately 5 x 2cm, gross weight 9.25 grams.

A wonderful Victorian brooch. It was made in the late 1880s in the Egyptian revival style. During the nineteenth century, new archaeological discoveries brought a renewed interest in the ancient world. Egypt captured the imaginations of the Victorians, and this scarab brooch is an excellent example of revivalist jewellery. The scarab is carved from a green hardstone and set to a yellow gold frame. On either side of the scarab are wings and snakes, set with rubies and decorated with vibrant blue and red enamel. This piece incorporates Ancient Egyptian motifs elegantly and would look beautiful pinned to a silk scarf.
