Art Deco Silver Gilt Enamel King Tut Charm w/ Body
A wonderful enameled gold charm/pendant from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! This unusual and collectable piece is made of gilded silver and portrays a mummified King Tut. The piece has the shape of a mummy sarcophagus and displays highly detailed engravings which are inlaid with vibrant and colorful enameling. The exterior is hinged and opens at the top to reveal the silver body of the mummy. The body inside, which can be fully removed, is that of a man with his arms folded across his chest. The interior of sarcophagus is stamped “800”. This fun and unique piece would make a fabulous addition to any collection!
Measurements: The mummy charm/pendant hangs 1 3/8" long, measures slightly more than 1/2" at its widest point, and 3/8" at its thickest point.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gilded silver or to the enameling and the removable mummy body and hinged clasp is secure and in good working condition.
