Art Deco and Egypt

April 21, 2015 at 1:32 PM

The Roaring twenties were a heady time of greed and excess.  For those that survived the first Great War, life was met with a newfound exuberance.  Architecture, literature, fashion, and of course jewelry were thrust into the first modern age with a new style that was radically different from the gilded age.

Egypt held a particular fascination for artists and designers. The discovery of the tomb of the pharaoh Tutankhamun, by Howard Carter in November 1922, sparked enormous popular interest in all things Egyptian. The wealth of funerary goods extracted from the tomb included chariots, furniture, mummy cases, spectacular gold jewelry and the extraordinary gold mask of the pharaoh.

Generic Egyptian images and motifs, such as lotus flowers, sunbursts, scarabs, hieroglyphics, pylons and pyramids, rapidly became popular. They covered everything from fine book bindings to biscuit boxes, variety cases to cinema façades.

Characteristics of Egyptian influenced jewelry are vast usage of gold, vibrant colored jewels, motifs such as tombs, bird ibis, scarab, sphinx, cobra, and feathers. These motifs were combined with the style at the moment and that created something even more fabulous.
