Recently found these orange pressed glass beads in the 20's-30's Czech Egyptian style. I think the original necklace would have been hand-knotted on cotton thread w/more large beads! My found necklace had green size 11 seed beads which the previous owner might have added - look 1970's to me - but that still makes them old. I restrung this as close to 30's as possible. I used 1930's green pyramid beads and some tiny silver French steel cuts. Clasp isn't old - used 2 current 1" sterling s-clasps and it is still only 16.5".

    Love those czech glass jewelry pieces, you did a good job restringing it.
    I'm soooo into Egyptian revival these days. I found an Egyptian themed necklace a few days ago. I will post it soon.

    Hi Newtimes - can't wait to see yours! I LOVE Egyptian revival too. I have some old 1930's but mostly costume jewelry from the 70's when the King Tut exhibition first came over. My boyfriend went to the Cairo museum a few years ago....best!! along w/London's collection.

    I'll post the rest of my Egyptian collection later.

    Thank you Stillwater - yes I know about Max Neiger, but I haven't seen an orange and green example on the Neiger research website. I'm sure my beads are 20's-30's - just the restrung green #11 looked 1970's. At least they didn't throw these beads away. Thank you for your comment.

    A collegue of mine is going to Egypt (first time) next week and she tells us she will visit absolutely nothing! Thats such a shame, I can't even think about it anymore ;-)
    Going to Egypt from Europe seems to be not very expensive these days...well maybe another time for me.

    Yes that is a shame she doesn't want to tour around but I guess some people don't enjoy history like we do HERE AT CW! My sweetie Steve loved street food vendors...no, she won't want to eat on the street..... He loved the food and loved the Nile cruise and Pyramid tour - and other tomb tours. I can't afford to travel w/him every year since he has more vacation time. He's rich and I'm ....working hard....
