Part 3 of my Deco Egyptian Revival bracelets. This one has been hard to photograph!

An Egyptian Revival bracelet, with date mark for 1937, of plique-a-jour enamel decoration, inset with marcasites. Plique-a-jour [which means letting in light] is a vitreous enameling technique where the enamel is applied in cells without backing, enabling the diffusion of light through the translucent enamel.

The bracelet is silver, with Egyptian motifs of a winged scarab, symbol of the sun god and lotus flowers, symbols of creation, and the enameling is in the colors found on ancient Egyptian monuments and tombs - turquoise blue, lapis blue and mantis green.

Egyptian in origin, the bracelet is stamped 935, Egyptian mark for Cairo and date mark M (1937). As the country mark (a cat) is missing, the bracelet may possibly be an export that was sent for assay before export.

It is 7 inches in length, the winged scarab measures 1.5 inches by 1 inch and each lotus flower panel measures 1 inch by 3/4 of an inch
