Vintage 1920s Egyptian Revival Pendant or Belt Buckle Poured Glass Celluloid & Patinated Copper


Brand Etsy

This is a wonderful large pendant that can also be used as a belt buckle, dating to the Egyptian Revival period of the 1920s, possibly of Czech origin. The piece features a poured glass centre piece that is molded to represent a Pharaoh head. The glass is mounted on a patinated copper piece that is in turn mounted on a mottled green celluloid piece. There are four spinach green orb balls mounted on opposite sides of the piece. The celluloid back has a vertical celluloid bar affixed to it so that the piece can be used as a belt buckle or sewn onto a garment. There is a metal loop at the top so that the piece can be hung like a pendant. The pendant / buckle measures 3 5/8 high by 3 wide. It is in very good condition but there is verdigris patina to the copper - in theory, verdigris should be cleaned off, although it does provide an aged look. Interesting piece of Egyptian revival jewelry - sure to be noticed!
