Rare faience (blue green glazed) clay Egyptian scarab amulets on a custom stand. Scarabs were popular amulets and impression seals in Ancient Egypt. Egyptian faience is a non-clay based ceramic composed of crushed quartz or sand, with small amounts of calcite lime and a mixture of alkalis, displaying surface vitrification due to the soda lime silica glaze often containing copper pigments to create a bright blue-green luster. Each mounted on a single custom antiqued bronze mounts.

Provenance: Ashby Collection

Dimensions: 9" X 5.25" with stand, main scarab is 3" X 2"
