Product Description

An unusual and rare pair of Ancient Egyptian Cast Silver Amulets of the god Osiris and the Scarab with open wings.

The pieces show Osiris as a mummy, with the classic folded arms. Both Osiris and the Scarab are very plain looking without any real detail. They do have a small hole to thread it by for wear. The pieces are rare in that they are made of silver, instead of more common ceramic. Egyptian paste (erroneously referred to as faience) was the most popular material for man-made amulets and is often seen in green and blue colours. Expensive materials such as gold, silver (as in this case), and electrum (mix of silver and gold) were appreciated for their durability and were employed for amulets by the higher classes of Egyptian society.
