Egyptian Winged Cap With Motometer 1925
Apart from the natural aging of the finish on this bronze Egyptian Cap, the piece is in very fine condition. It first came out Circa 1925 by Lawrence A. Sweet Mfg. Co. Inc. in Los Angeles, Ca. U.S.A.
The discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb by Howard Carter in 1922 is considered the most important archaeological find of the 20th century. At that time, there was another revival of Egyptomania which started in the early 1700's and was heavily a factor of Empire Furniture and the Regency period of 1805 to 1815, and during that time many pieces of furniture were made in the Egyptian taste. I have several books on Egyptomania which I collect.
I got this piece from bids on Ebay.
