1920s Max Neiger Egyptian Revival Brooch

A large Art Deco brooch in the Egyptian Revival style, made in Gablonz, Czechoslovakia in the early to mid 1920s. This piece was made by the Neiger brothers and was produced in response to the craze for all things Egyptian that followed the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamen in 1922. It bears all the hallmarks of pieces made by the Neigers, with its gold-tone filigree metal back, the use of cold enamels and opaque mottled green glass, often known as Peking glass because of its resemblance to jade. It is teeming with Egyptian motifs including the Sphinx, the Pyramids of Giza, a winged scarab beetle and an obelisk with hieroglyphs.

Max and Norbert Neiger were in production in Gablonz between about 1905 and 1938. Norbert ran the business, while Max designed the majority of their products. The peak of their success occured in the 1920s/30s. The family were Jewish and tragically both brothers and their family died during the Holocaust.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
