Treasures of the Ancient World

Ancient artifacts recreated as contemporary jewelry and sculpture in precious metals and cast stone.

Mycenaean Funeral Mask Pin

Item AT-AG
Approximately 1.25 X 1.25 inches
The mask of beaten gold found by Schliemann in the royal tombs of Mycenae was thought to
be the mask of Agamemnon. The name persists, although it is actually from an earlier time,
predating him by several hundred years. Some believe it to be a forgery, partly because it
is the likeness of a man with facial hair (interestingly, in a style which was popular in
Schliemann's time), while other masks of this period depict clean-shaven Kings.

Solid 14 karat gold, $580.50 ($575.00 + $5.50 S&H, US)
Gold-toned pewter, $38.50 ($35.00 + $3.50 S&H, US)
