The firm of Carlo Giuliano was one of the leading producers of archaeological-revival jewelry in the second half of the nineteenth century, and this parure in the Egyptian taste reflects one of the many historical styles in which the Giuliano firm worked. It is the first jewelry in the Egyptian taste to enter the Museum’s collection, and as such represents one of the important currents in revival taste in the mid to late nineteenth century.
