Vintage Egyptian Hieroglyphic Ring 800 Silver & Faience Amulet Adjustable Size

Regular price $60.00

The ancient hieroglyphic cuneiform of antiquity is featured in this vintage Egyptian Revival sterling and faience ring set in 800 silver, and in the form of a New Kingdom amulet, circa late 50s early 60s. 

The mid-century tourist ring consists of 800 silver with decorative embossed lotus leaves along the shank which is also partially adjustable – and square cut bezel with rope twist trim, set with a green glazed faience steatite cab impressed with hieroglyphic cuneiform writing.

There are silver hallmarks along the inside shank (partially shown in close-up) with what appears to be a silver fineness mark for 800, assay mark for Cairo, lotus mark for post 1946, and Arabic letter mark for 1959 to 1961.

The face of the ring measures approximately 5/8 of an inch wide by ¾ of an inch high, weighs 9.0 grams, and has a bendable shank that currently measures a size 8&1/2 on my ring mandrel.
