Seller: vintagemamma (1,528) 100%, Location: Jackson, California, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 323629887444 Antique scarab necklace--an Egyptian antique--but of unknown date. The necklace features a large scarab carved from some pale, off-white stone, surrounded by a string of 10 small, carved white scarabs (a few of the scarabs are a little darker); beads include irregular, natural clay beads and discs in soft ochre, buff, black, greenish-blue, and pinkish-orange colors, as well as shiny, pinkish-red "glass" beads. Large scarab measures 1 1/4" long by 7/8" wide and the tiny scarab beads measure 3/4" to 1/2" each; the necklace measures 34" (not including large scarab that drops from the center of the necklace). There are simple "hieroglyphs" on the back, including a bird, probably quickly carved and stylized. Condition is good, nice patina, but cotton thread/string will need to be replace if you plan on wearing this on a regular basis. A lovely Egyptian piece, nice to see the large scarab with the original clay beads and smaller scarabs attached. Offers always welcome! Please email me with any questions, as all sales are final. Shipping is $3.50 in the US; $12.00 to Canada and $18.00 for all other international bids please. Payment is expected within 3 days; I ship within 3 business days of payment. A sincere thanks for looking at this beautiful necklace! Condition: Very good antique condition, wonderful patina, perhaps consider restringing at some point.
