An Important Archaeological Revival Coral And Gold Parure

Description

An Important Archaeological Revival coral and gold parure, consisted of a necklace, bracelet, brooch and earrings, the necklace set with seventeen graduating coral scarab beetles, each suspended from a single coral lotus head and gold foliage and a coral frog, attached to a gold ribbon of loop-in-loop chainwork terminating on each side to a shaped and pierced hook fastener decorated with a single coral lotus head, the necklace measuring approximately 16 inches long, the bracelet, the brooch and earrings of matching design, all mounted in yellow gold with fine wire-work and beading decorations, bearing gold hallmarks N3 with the profile of Parthenope, Naples, circa 1840, gross weight 139 grams,

A remarkable parure. This set is in the archaeological revival style, which became popular in the mid-nineteenth century as archaeological expeditions uncovered treasures of the ancient world. This parure draws inspiration from Egyptian and Etruscan motifs. The necklace is woven from fine gold mesh and hanging from the necklace are seventeen scarab beetles carved from coral. The scarab beetles are attached to delicate rosettes and frogs. This motif continues in the earrings, brooch, and bracelet. The bracelet and brooch feature wonderful Etruscan details, such as applied gold wirework. This magnificent suite is a perfect example of the archaeological revival style.
