LOTUS STYLE DAZZLES LIKE AN ART DECO EGYPTIAN PYXIS

DETAILS ~ Art Deco Style Egyptian Revival Lotus Leaf Cuff Pyxis Bracelet
Condition: MINT; VERY MINOR WEAR
Date Range: 1980s
Dimensions: 8" circumference; 3/8" wide
Maker: Cleveland Museum of Art; The Museum Company

Co-created by the Cleveland Museum of Art and The Museum Company, this gorgeous bracelet was inspired by a robin's-egg blue faience box in CMA's permanent collection of ancient Egyptian art. The ancient cylindrical box, which was used for toilet articles. was known as a pyxis (great Scrabble word!). The graceful architecture of the original antiquity replicated by CMA resembles a capital or column from Egypt's Ptolemaic period (305-330 BC) and is shown in photo#5.

Each end of the bracelet mirrors the curled petal floral motif that appears in the original. Cast in gold-plated pewter, the bracelet is 3/8" wide with each lotus leaf end piece measuring approximately 7/8" square. Its circumference is 8" and it is very pliable for adjusting to ideal fit.

The bracelet is marked with the initials of the designer "HMVR," as well as CMA for the Cleveland Museum of Art and a trademark for The Museum Company.

The bracelet is featured in several treasuries.
