A wonderful antique Egyptian scarab pendant. The scarab itself is a vibrant blue and it has a stunning mesmerizing hue that is between blue and green that could be a form of art glass. The top of the pendant is in the lotus motif.
The scarab and lotus motif became popular during periods of Egyptian revival , notably post-Napoleonic campaigning in Egypt and after the discovery of Tutankhamens tomb. As you can see on the back of the pendant there is a bar that could have at one time been attached to another object. The lotus setting appears to be brass.There is a hole drilled through the scarab near the top of the pendant. It can be seen in the photos. This is a great vintage piece.
