Vintage Art Deco Egyptian Revival signet ring (circa 1920s to 1930s) crafted in 14 karat yellow gold.
Egyptian revival jewelry was popular during the Art Deco era with the opening of King Tut's tomb in 1922. Fabulous and distinct jewelry was created to commemorate the occasion. The oval signet ring features a beautifully detailed Sphinx to both side shoulders. The Sphinx is a mythical creature with the head of a human and the body of a Lion. The signet mount is engraved with the initials "SH". Crafted as a men's ring it also looks great on a woman's hand.
The ring is in very good condition showing minimal wear. We have not cleaned the ring in order to preserve the patina and collector value.
