1920s Neiger Brothers Egyptian Revival Beaded Necklace


This red and green sautoir necklace is vintage, soon to be antique, from the 1920s and was created by the Neiger brothers of Gablonz.  This Egyptian Revival style necklace features tomato red glass beads of varying shapes.   The Neiger brothers were greatly inspired by the Egyptian fervour of the 1920s and that influenced the design of this piece.  The larger beads have been patterned in green to resemble scarabs.   They're accented with small green glass spacer beads and larger round red beads featuring Egyptian style designs.  Scarabs are associated with the Egyptian god Khepri who represents the renewal of life and is often depicted with a scarab head.

The necklace is in excellent condition for its age with the beads intact and still threaded on the original silk thread which looks to be holding up well.

Neiger Brothers

The Neiger brothers of Gablonz Czechoslovakia, known as Max and Norbert, created beautiful costume jewellery made primarily of Bohemian glass.  They specialized in exotic pieces inspired by Egypt, India and China.  The 1920s saw a peak in interest for Egyptian Revival jewellery and the Neiger brothers' popularity increased with it.  They were active from 1905 until the end of the 1930s when, as unfortunate witnesses to history, they were killed at Auschwitz.

Their jewellery is very rare and collectible because it is so different and was produced over such a limited period.

How do you rate the condition of a piece?

Excellent - No visible flaws to note but items may exhibit some signs of age related wear
Very Good - Some visible flaws which aren't considered to impair the wearability of the piece
Good - Some more notable flaws but the piece is still in collectible condition

All items are vintage and have lived a previous life, therefore signs of age related wear are to be expected. I do my best to bring attention to any faults in the description and by using the condition scale.
