This gorgeous obelisk talisman charm is made of 14 karat yellow gold and has Egyptian Revival motifs engraved onto every side. This charm from the Victorian era is a fantastic find, perfect for a contemporary dress or as part of an antique charm collection.
Egyptian motifs and an interest in artifacts became widespread in Europe in the 18th century due to Napoleon's campaign but it wasn't until the early 19th Century that Egyptian jewelry became all the rage in England. There were many resurgence's of the Egyptian style across Europe and over many decades. This piece is an unmarked but acid tested 14K gold Victorian-era antique. The charm weighs .7 grams and measures approximately 7/8 by 1/8 inches. It makes a great unisex item.
This piece would be a wonderful talisman for the Egyptophile in your life, or the perfect addition to your antique collection!
