Rare 1920’s 30’s Deco Egyptian Revival Chain Belt
Rare deco Egyptian revival chain-link metal belt
1920’s or 30’s
Superb rare Deco Egyptian Revival chain-link belt, 1920’s – 30’s
This is a wonderful find which reflects the craze for all things Egyptian in the wake of the discovery of Tutankhamen’s tomb in the 1920’s.
I have seen a few of these over the years, but not of this quality, the detail is superb.
The belt consists of stamped metal squares; each like a cartouche depicting an Egyptian hieroglyph and joined together with metal links. They’re just as detailed on the reverse.
It fastens with a coin-like buckle, encompassed by two filigree crescents.
Lovely condition, has had a gentle clean to preserve the aged appearance; of course you could polish it further if desired.
Fits a 26” waist. If you’re lucky enough to be smaller you could maybe get a link removed and use it as a pendant?

Adorn Vintage celebrates all aspects of the vintage lifestyle from fashion to home and garden. I love pattern, colour and texture with an emphasis on the decorative and unusual.
A lifetime of collecting led me to doing my first vintage fair in 2007 then in 2009 I joined the newly opened Space Vintage store in Harrogate where I sell an eclectic mix of clothing, accessories, textiles and homewares.
If you like to seek out something a little bit different for your home or wardrobe, I hope you’ll find it among my wonderful collection of vintage and antique finds.
I aim to post within 2 working days though with the current COVID-19 situation this may be longer as I’m trying to limit trips out, your patience is appreciated in this matter. In order to minimise waste I recycle packaging where possible. Please be assured that your items will still be packaged with the utmost care even if they’re in a cereal box!
I try to describe my items as accurately as possible; noting any wear or damage. Please study the photos carefully as these form part of the description.I consider myself an enthusiast rather than an expert and am bound to get things wrong occasionally eg the date of an item. There is never any intention to mislead. As a lover of vintage I find it easy to overlook minor flaws; often considering them part and parcel of an item which has had a previous life and been used and loved. Indeed, in some cases these flaws make an item more desirable. If you are not sure about anything, please get in touch, I’d rather you were sure than have a disappointed customer!
