Victorian Original Scarab Beetle Egyptian Revival Cleopatra Earrings
Bridget found this beautiful 19th. Century very rare set of original Victorian Egyptian Revival Scarab Beetle earrings. The set of earrings has 2 real petrified scarab beetles preserved and mounted in a gold plated setting, these. Earrings come in a small jewelry box. The scarab beetles are so beautiful and their appearance change every time when you look at it from a different angle or as the lightning is changing. The stunning green colored shades don’t come to justice in the pictures. During the victorian times people were hugely interested in the natural world and the classification of insects, plants and animals. This blossomed with a massive revival of interest in all things Egyptian prompted by the opening of the Suez Canal (1869) and tomb excavations taking place in Egypt during the early 19th century. The scarab was a popular motif and readily incorporated into the Victorians. This is a real eye-catcher, a stunning piece from the past. Track Page Views With. Auctiva’s FREE Counter.
