An Egyptian Faience Mummy Bead Necklace with Amulet, Late Period, ca 664 - 332 BC

A charming faience bead necklace; the cylindrical spherical beads are the pure earthy colors the Egyptians associated with magical power. The deep black beads represented the rich alluvial soil from the Nile floods, essential to grow crops, the warm blues and greens representing new life, rejuvenation and rebirth. The necklace features a small faience amulet pendant for protection.

Condition: All beads are intact and in excellent condition overall, restrung with later vermeil gold clasp.

Dimensions: Length: 16.5 inches (42 cm)

Provenance: Private Californian collection, acquired in the 1960's and then by descent.
