    Condition Report*:

    Overall Condition: Good
    Notes: Beautiful collection of 19th century jewelry with unusual scarab motif. A few tesserae missing on the round brooch pendant. Also a very few are missing on the suite, not really visible without a loupe. The bale on the pendant is a later addition. The screw backs on the earrings are gold filled.
