This item is for restoration/repair; note the following issues identified:
- c-ring is broken
- Hing on Queen Nefertiti profile is glued so it does not swing as intended

- Note Markings on Headdress Date code X
- Please review all of the photographs to ensure I did not miss something important.
Circa 1922 Art Deco Egyptian Revival monumental type icon plaque of Queen Nefertiti in profile. The place is hand chamfered and this piece was certainly hand made and intricately designed with pierced floral surround. Adorning this plaque are 22 fancy links in the form of a sarcophagus which appear to be cast silver, folded over, shaped and soldered. The length of each sarcophagus strand is 12" for a total length of 24". A very unusual and unique piece of Art Deco Egyptian revival jewelry.
Relative to the missing stones, as someone will ask how I know what stones, there were 3 left in the piece when I picked it up. All 3 were poorly glued back on the piece. They had to be removed for cleaning, and I misplaced them. I've had this piece for quite some time and unfortunately, I am just getting around to the box of bits this was in.
Please do review all of the photographs as they are of the actual item you are buying.
