Art Deco Silver & Enamel Egyptian Revival Vulture Brooch Antique c.1920 (Code A632)
A rare Art Deco period Egyptian revival brooch. It is modelled as a vulture with wings spread wide and head lifted with a hooked beak. The brooch is in silver with enamel with green and black wings very much in the Art Deco taste. It has a long pin with simple hooked catch and this is working fine. There is also a small safety chain as can be seen in the images. There appear to be no marks although this seems to be common for Egyptian revival jewellery. The metal tests as Sterling grade silver. Note there is even engraving to the back of the brooch with feather detail and even an eye to the head. The head of the vulture is slightly craned forward to add extra dimension and help avoid catching on fabrics.
