Knoll & Pregizer Egyptian Revival Scarab Brooch
Incredibly rare and breathtaking Cartier-inspired Art Deco Knoll & Pregizer Egyptian Revival Scarab Brooch c.1925. Marked 935 KP. Sterling silver with calibré cut, triangular,round and cabochon pastes and faux pearls mimicking platinum, diamonds, sapphires, emeralds and pearls in the form of an Egyptian scarab. This is one of the most iconic and ultimate motifs in art deco jewelry made so popular in fine jewelry by Cartier and others following the mania for all things Egyptian, especially after the discovery of King Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922. This is truly a work of art and a museum quality piece.
This was the piece of my dreams that got away so many years ago that I was finally able to obtain in 2012. It is featured in the book "A Collectors Guide to Costume Jewelry" by Tracy Tolkien and Henrietta Wilkinson from 1997 misidentified as "French". Knoll & Pregizer of Pforzheim, Germany was unknown at the time.
