Seller: grimstonian (3,166) 100%, Location: West Sussex, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 232587316700 Fascinating Egyptian early glass size hair ring: New Kingdom 1500-1000 BC. Click image to enlarge Description Egyptian early glass smaller size hair ring A small but highly interesting Ancient Egyptian penannular hair rings in high fired frit, a type of glass, imitating red-jasper; with D-section hoop and opening at one end. Superb condition; complete and intact. Diameter 9.4 mms (0.4 ins) New Kingdom; 18th-19th Dynasty: Circa 1500-1000 BC. Such objects, usually made of jasper, are sometimes considered as earrings. However, examples such as these have too narrow a cleft for this to slip onto the ear and are more clearly understood as either hair rings to weave in the wigs or possibly as token jewellery for the deceased, not intended for wearing. The Egyptian jewellery-maker did not use precious stone;what he held the most valuable the modern world would consider at best only semiprecious and some of the most characteristic and pleasing effects were obtained using man-made materials, such as highly fired frit paste and glass in imitation of semi-precious stones. For the Ancient Egyptians glass was regarded as an artificial semi-precious stone and was a costly novelty material, furthermore,most of the materials used were chosen because colours for the Egyptians had an underlying symbolism or amulet significance.
