Cairo Time: Art Deco Egyptian Revival Bracelet
The Art Deco movement was heavily influenced by ancient Egyptian themes. The 1920s in general were caught up in a fantasy of Egypt. Sometimes things where more fantastical than others. For example, there were no elephants in Egypt since the historical period began. Why let authenticity get in the way of appreciating this bracelet? It’s a well-worn piece so the flapper who wore it didn;t care.
