Necklace of Ancient Egyptian beads and Bes amulet

Necklace of Ancient Egyptian beads and Bes amulet Ancient Egyptian  faience
A pretty necklace composed of matched Egyptian faience beads of tube and disc form, with a small central faience amulet depicting the god, Bes, wearing his tall, plumed headdress.
The beads have been restrung with modern gold-plated spacer beads, wire and gold-plated clasp and loops.

Late Dynastic period: Circa 7th-1st century BC.

S. Gabbay collection, Israel, brought to the UK circa 1975, and thence by descent to the present owner.

Very Fine condition

Total necklace length 44.2 cms (17.4 ins) including the fastener.

(Although he had no temples, Bes enjoyed enormous popularity in Egypt and beyond. His image decorated countless decorative art objects with which the body routinely came into contact, such as beds and head-ests. The Bes amulet was very popular with women in Egyptian times, worn as an amulet of good luck to keep them safe in childbirth).
