Found this while sorting out the finds bag, it was found on the RCM rally, thought it was a broken brooch.
On closer inspection it looks like an Egyptian Pharaoh, any thoughts.

That’s interesting! I’m guessing it’s related to the Egyptian madness in the early 19th century? https://www.historyanswers.co.uk/people ... ly-spooky/
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

An unusual but quite a cool find, not too old. :thumbsup:

Egyptian queen / goddess vulture headdress.

Maybe the shallow screw thread went onto a scent bottle or something similar.

Certainly different, Bob.
Initial thoughts were 1920/30`s Art Deco period, fuelled by the interest from the Tutankhamun discovery.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Inside the circle, does it look like a hard resin type glue? Could it be a fridge magnet that had a circular magnet glued in? Could be like a spelter type monkey metal.

Good shout - I think it's meant to be Cleopatra and alibaba have some metal Cleopatra fridge magnets of similar size.

That's a good call, more practical to have the magnet more central but guess same same but different! :D :thumbsup:
