A one-of-a-kind treasure, this stick pin holds a teeny work of art from Dynastic Egypt. A highly detailed and beautifully carved Pharaoh wearing the Nemes Headdress and the Royal Beard set in a simple bezel frame. The amulet is of carved Lapis Lazuli, a favorite of Ancient Egyptians. The amulet is ancient, and the setting dates from the 1920s. The gold is 14k fineness.

The Modern world has long had a fascination with Ancient Egypt. Napoleon's Egyptian Campaign in the last years of the 1700s had Europeans enamored with all things Egyptian, and soon after, they began making jewels and decorative objects using Ancient amulets and scarabs.

Details.....The lapis Pharaoh measures .43" x .33", including the frame. The pin measures 2.06" long. In Excellent Antique condition. You should always expect some wear on vintage and antique jewels; we consider it part of the charm.
