Superb Egyptian Royal Gold ScarabThis treasure is from the New Kingdom, (c.1550-1595 B.C.), and likely from the 18th dynasty. It is the mentioned amulet from the beads lot here, lot 16. Not sure which ruler this particular cartouch is from, it compares, in quality and period to a royal gold ring in the Met., the image of that ring is down below in our pictures. Untested and never scored, not sure of its interior gold consistency through, or, of the Metropolitan Museum example either, it is as fine as any, that I'm sure of, and of royal heritage. The attachment loop seems hand crafted, could be modern or old.Fine condition, Approx. 3/4 " or 18mm in length.
