Treasures Of The Pharoahs

This wonderful elaborate be-jewelled filigree brass buckle dates from the 1950’s.  

 

There is no known provenance, but the deep amber glass was extremely popular from the late 1950’s into the 70’s.  The brass itself shows little sign of wear, although the gilding is slightly discoloured in places, commensurate with its age.  

 

The filigree work is incredibly detailed and there are 8 cut glass ‘gems’ with a central pearl, which although real, has been added recently.  

 

The opulent necklace is a single string of mixed amber cut glass beads, real freshwater pearls, dyed gold with metallic beads and tiny lapis lazuli faceted stones.  

 

The bead length is 80cms (31.5 inches) and is designed to slip over the head.  The buckle has been gently closed shut to prevent opening whilst being worn.  The buckle measures 8cms (just over 3 inches) long, and 3cms (just over 1 inch) at its widest point.

The necklace is sold with a pair of gold-plated drop earrings made from matching pearls and gold faceted beads, for pierced ears.
