Description

This is a gold tone Egyptian Revival pin created in the 1970's. It depicts the Sarcophagus of King Tut. The sarcophagus is detailed with a scarab, classic Egyptian design work and three Egyptian Gods. The pin is in excellent condition and measures 2.25". It is also unmarked but it looks like it could be ALVA creation for the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Back in the 1970's, the Egyptian government allowed Tutankhamen (Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty) and the treasures found in his tomb to tour the United States. It was the first time since the 1920's that Tutankhamen could be viewed by the public. Note: He has since his discovery been colloquially referred to as King Tut.

It was a very big deal. Everyone had to see the treasure as it crossed the country visiting prominent Museums. Tickets were very difficult to obtain as everyone clamored to see this momentous exhibition. This event created a second Egyptian Revival. Steve Martin even sung about it on "Saturday Night Live" and his song became an instant hit. Naturally, jewelry manufacturers rushed to produce Egyptian inspired pieces. The Metropolitan Museum of Art being a leader in these innovative designs.

This pin was created during this time. It is a golden symbol, an artistic presentation, cool, fun and will definitely get noticed. The perfect gift for creative types, Gallery owners, Egyptologists, Historians, Steve Martin fans, and Mummy Enthusiasts.

Please review the photos carefully and email with any questions you may have prior to making a purchase.
