I purchased this piece in Aswan - early 90's - no clue how old it is. I just liked it. It is a good example of the Egyptian alphabet with great detail on the cartouche. Lovely lotus flower accents on either side. It measures 1.75 inches tall and just over 1 3/8 inch wide. A very solid piece with an Italian 18" sterling silver chain - let me know the length - very nice piece. It could use a good rub and I hope that is reflected in the picture. I will leave it as is and the new owner can decide. It is stamped with the Egyptian stamp on the backside. Only piece I have.
