An Egyptian Faience Bead & Wedjet Necklace, 18th Dynasty, ca. 1550-1295 B.C.

Exceptional necklace comprising faience beads and featuring a blue faience wedjet eye pendant; the cylindrical and spherical beads that are the pure earthy colors the Egyptians associated with magical power.  The tan spacer beads represented the rich alluvial soil from the Nile floods, essential to grow crops, whereas the bright blue beads represent new life, rejuvenation and rebirth. The wedjet eye amulets add powerful protection to this charming necklace.  Two modern silver beads flank the pendant to give this stunning piece a decorative touch.

Condition: All beads are intact and in excellent condition overall, restrung with modern silver clasp.  A great gift idea.

Dimensions:  Length: 42 cm (16.5 in).

Provenance:  Private Californian collection
