Egyptian Bracelet, ca. 1924

This is a Egyptian bracelet.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Anonymous as part of The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s.

It is dated ca. 1924. Its medium is diamonds, emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and platinum.

Events such as the discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922, followed by the excavation of his sarcophagus and gold coffin, provided sources of motifs, sparking a renewed popularity of turquoise and lapis blues. Lacloche, a Paris firm with no American branch, specialized in Egyptian revival jewelry.

It is credited Private Collection.
