Antique 1920s Egyptian Revival carved steatite scarab bar pin in original box

A fabulous bit of Egypto-mania jewelry history! This 1920s Egyptian Revival bar pin features a carved steatite scarab in a simple bar pin. I believe the scarab is much older than the setting/box: perhaps by more than 100 years. The pin is nestled in its original box with a seafoam green velvet and satin interior and a leather, faux basket weave exterior. The box has little "handles" on both ends and a little flap of leather was even made to hide the metal hinge on the back. A beautiful little piece.

Measurements: 3.2 grams pin, 2" long
Era: 1910s-1920s
Markings: N/A, tests for 9 CT gold
