A pair of gilt Egyptian Revival, pharaoh and mummy earrings for pierced ears. They are quite long - being just over 3 1/2 inches. The pharaoh's heads are attached to a star shaped piece and the mummy hangs from this. Please see picture of the back. These earrings come from a large quantity of jewellery I am buying. It has all been sitting in a shop shut in 1972. The shop was opened around 1900. The then owner used to go to Gablonz to buy jewellery/findings. According to the family member I am buying the jewellery from, this man was her grandfather and he knew the Neiger brothers and was able to speak the language. His daughter took over the shop and jewellery was made using the old components bought by the grandfather. (Apparently the Neiger brothers used to let him have components they no longer wanted). In 1972 the shop was shut - due to family problems - and the contents stayed in place until the daughter died recently. I have a large quantity of stock which I am sorting through. So far this is the only pair of these particular earrings I have found. Ref: 3082 YL
