Vtg 1920s Pharoah Scarab Child's Ring From Egypt Gold Swivel Stark Collection For Sale
VTG 1920s Pharoah Scarab Child's Ring from Egypt Gold Swivel Stark Collection
In 1927, my father traveled to the Middle East with his parents, H. J. Lutcher and Nita Stark and his grandparents William and Miriam Stark. One of the places that they visited was Luxor Egypt. He was given this ring by Muhammed Abubi (see picture for spelling if I made a mistake) for his fourth birthday. It is a child's ring. The listing includes the box that my dad kept the ring in and the note in the picture. This ring was part of the Stark Family's Egyptian collection that was sold to the San Antonio Museum of Art in 1986 which was authorized by Nelda Stark. The ring was later returned to my father after he learned of the sale.
I tried to do some research on the ring and am including the information that I was able to find. Please read it carefully and ask any questions that you may have.
This is an Egyptian Scarab child's ring with cartouched scarab set in a golden swivel. The ring is stirrup-shaped with a shaped hoop with flattened pierced ends and the scarab attached in such a way that it can revolve when not worn on a finger, with the underside turned up when used as a seal. The beetle side is up when worn as an ornament.
Egypt is the country of origin. The style is Neo-Egyptian. A product of the third Neo-Egyptian revival:
The first Revival...Napoleans journey to Egypt was between 1805 and 1810.
The Second Revival was the opening of the Suez Canal, 1870.
The Third Revival was initiated by the discovery of King Tut-Ankh Amun's tomb, circa 1922.
Period is the 1920s
