Item # 041721 (B-95)
This is a designer signed ALICE CAVINESS 1960's Mid Century Etruscan Egyptian Revival necklace/brooch with green jadeite and faux simulated pearls.
With Elizabeth Taylor's Cleopatra movie from 1963, Egyptian Revival was all the rage with jewelry designers.
Triangular pendant/brooch hangs 6" in length when measuring pendant along with tassels.
The Pendant itself measures 3 3/4" by 2 1/2".
There is a spring ring clasp chain measuring 24".
Condition: Very good vintage condition with typical wear due to age and handling. All jadeite and faux pearls intact and in very good condition. Brass is in very good condition but does have a couple of spots that could use polishing.
