Egyptian Revival ~ Art Deco ~ Vintage Pendant ~ Charm
VERY unique Souvenir from the Paris Exposition of 1900.
Miniature Photo Album inside an Egyptian Revival Enamel Locket.
REALLY COOL! Tiny Souvenir. When closed, it measures only ¾" x ½"!
Upon opening, tiny metal pages are veiled upon which are glued sepia photographs from the Exposition.
Its front cover features the face of an Egyptian Pharaoh made of colorful enamel. Some enamel is missing near the spine ~~ as can be seen in the scans ~~ otherwise, it is in good vintage condition .
Around the Pharaoh’s head is etched: EXPOSITION 1900.
Made of very clean and shiny gold-tone metal, probably brass or gold tone, and its clasp closes securely and there is a bale on top so it can be worn as a pendant on a necklace or as a charm on a bracelet.
The Exposition Universelle of 1900 was a World’s Fair held in Paris and is widely regarded as the most brilliant event of its kind. Its goal was to celebrate the achievements of the past century and to accelerate development into the next. The style that was universally present during the Exposition was Art Nouveau.
More than 40 nations showed themselves off in pavilions beside the Seine. There were an Egyptian souk, a Swiss Alpine village and a Japanese pagoda. There were also a giant Ferris Wheel (Le Grand Roue) and a moving pavement that stretched more than two miles.
This Enamel Locket is very clean and is in very good vintage condition ~~ a wonderful Souvenir of the first Great Event of the 20th century!!
