Item Description

On November 4th 1922, archaeologist Howard Carter sent a telegram to his patron Lord Carnarvon, in England, saying: “At last we have made wonderful discovery in Valley; a magnificent tomb with seals intact; re-covered same for your arrival; congratulations”

The discovery of the tomb of the Egyptian New Kingdom boy king Tutankhamen, and the ‘wonderful things’ it contained, received worldwide press coverage.

It sparked a renewed public interest in ancient Egypt which, in turn, influenced fashion, jewellery and, indeed, the decor of the time.

This stylised Egyptian appliqué panel, dating to this period, is a good example of the sort of fashionable decoration that would have been brought to England from Egypt and adorned the walls of affluent homes of the time.

Appliqué is a traditional form of needlework in Egypt, dating back to ancient times.

Indeed a few examples were found among the artefacts in Tutankhamen’s tomb.

Egyptian, 1920’s

Wear commensurate with age.
