    I bought this bracelet few months ago from Ebay. It looks bit crude, but still interesting. My guess it is from the 1920s or`1930s, when interest in Ancient Egypt was at its zenith after the discovery of Tutankamun's tomb in 1922. It has a pin fastening, what I don't see often, the pin has to be pushed through hinges.
    Any info would be greatly appreciated!!!

      Lovely!
      I have some similar that are date stamped from the 1930s so I'd imagine this would be similar. I can't make out the marks on the edges of the panels from your photos, but this table of Egyptian date marks might be useful:

      Now, that's something you don't see everyday. Very interesting for sure!

      I have a piece of Egyptian silver too and the state of the silver is similar to yours. Maybe it is a lower grade silver. It is really hard to clean but I think this adds some character to the piece.

      Thank you Pebble, Jscott0363, Freiheit for you info/comments!!!
      I can't see any marks on it, I'm not even sure is it a silver or not. Maybe I will take it to the jeweller for a test.
      Thanks to everybody for stopping by :)))

      In the third photo, the bottom left edge of the panel with the guy with the knife - looks like it has stamps on the edge?
      Here's one of mine, you can see the stamps on the third photo:

      I wasn't sure if it was silver or not, but I thought the date stamp page might give you some clues!
      Off to look at freiheit's brooch!

      You have got very sharp eyes!!! Tomorrow I will check those marks or scratches, now it's too late and I'm in my bed :)

      Thank you Pebble for pointing out the hallmarks to me. They are quite hard to see, but they are on each panel on exactly the same spot. I tried to identify them, but not sure. Soon I upload a close up pic of the hallmarks.

      My eyes aren't what they used to be, but I know where to look on these bracelets as there are a few in my family, bought in the 1930s by my Mum's uncle :)
      It took me a long time to notice the marks on the bracelets I have, and even longer to work out what the symbols were - I was squinting through a loupe for days and trawling though Google until I finally found them :)
    9. freiheit freiheit, 5 years ago
      I didn't see the mark on this brooch either until recently. I don't think that one expects them to be on the front:)

      I recognize the Egyptian Ibis Bird in the middle. Love this piece !
    11. martika martika, 5 years ago
      Thank you Freiheit and Dragonfly for your kind comment!!!
      Freiheit - your brooch is lovely. I still can't see the hallmarks! I think I have to go to Specsavers.
      Pebble - the Egyptian marks are even harder to recognise, than the European marks. They look more blunt (at least to me). I'm just going to upload the close up pics of the marks in a new post.

      I remember when I was redoing a room with faux aswan granite I painted. I took 30 egyptian bracelets and used the decorative pieces for a long border on top. I have never seen this bracelet before, it is beautiful !~

      Thank you PhilDMorris for your comment! That room must look very unique and interesting !!!

      There are probably marks in a number of places; sometimes 1 panel will have more than just the metal purity mark. To find them, it helps to know what you are looking for:
