A Fabulous Rare antique Art Deco Egyptian Revival winged scarab diamond paste HUGE dress/fur clip. The clip is set with beautiful baguette cut and round diamante stones – all the stones are present and sparkling. Some have darkened a little with age, which is inevitable, but there is nothing at all which detracts from the immense charm of this fantastic piece. The metalwork is rhodium plated and is still amazingly shiny even now. The clip on the reverse is still very strong and working well, with teeth to keep it firmly in place.
I was delighted to see that HM The Queen, on her address to the nation to mark the 75th VE day anniversary, wore a similar pair of dress clips/brooches.
There have been many Egyptian Revivals, but probably the most notable was in the 1920’s when King Tutankhamun’s tomb was discovered by Howard Carter in 1922. This generated an enormous amount of interest and the world went crazy for all things with an ancient Egyptian theme.
