Seller: bokonon99 (160) 100%, Location: Herndon, Virginia, Ships to: US, Item: 132857175907 Egyptian faience bead necklace 28 inches in length. One of the beads is broken (see picture). These beads are ancient (circa 1000 BC). I took this to an antiques dealer and he told me that while the beads were indeed ancient the carved stone scarab with the tied on faience wings was most likely made in the late 1800s and added to the "mummy" beads (which were plentiful) for sale to Americans and Europeans traveling on the "Grand Tour" of Egypt and Africa around the turn of the century. It came to me from a great uncle who lived in New York in the early 1900s and I am told acquired it from a society friend. Provenance: Ownership History Not Available, Material: Pottery
