Relics of the Nile is thrilled to present this beautiful bright blue Egyptian scarab for your consideration. This wonderful ancient Egyptian, New Kingdom, blue faience scarab ring is deeply inscribed on the underside for "Ptah-Neb-Ma'at" or Ptah, Lord of Ma'at which translates as "Ptah, Lord of Truth, Justice and Universal Balance". The scarab measures 15 mm in length and is mounted on a modern, marked 14KT gold ring. The interior diameter of the gold ring is 18 mm. Condition: there is some visible damage to the rear of the scarab, as seen. The ring has been resized at some point as well. Purchased from the Hakim Gallery in New York City in 1960. Details provided to purchaser.
