#ObjectOfTheWeek Egyptian Sarcophagus Pendant, c.1920
A gold and brightly coloured enamelled pendant in the form of an Egyptian vanitas sarcophagus that contains a silver figure of Aphrodite which rotates when the knob at the base of the figure is turned. The discovery in 1922 of Tutankhamun’s tomb sparked a wave of Egyptomania, it influenced architecture, interior design, jewellery making, writing and the film industry.
This playful pendant would have been at the height of fashion.

Just completed a week at @gsmithscentre undergraduate summer school with master silversmith Andy Putland. It was a FANTASTIC week, learning how to raise a beaker and spin a lid and cup. We had talks and demonstrations from silversmith's, jewellers, polishers, engravers and business men. We also visited Goldsmiths Hall, Hatton gardens, and had a private viewing and handling session of the new exhibition at Goldsmiths Centre.

What grown men do!
Morris dancing, folk dancing, goes back a long way. First mentioned in 1448, dancers were paid 7 shillings by the Goldsmiths Company. Men wear bells on their shins and use sticks, swords and handkerchiefs to dance with. There are links to Moorish dancing. But we see them all over the country at village fetes. Today they were outside the cathedral. #goldsmithscompany #morrisdancers #exetercathedral

Book of the Month
This month the Library are highlighting The Silver Caesars: a Renaissance Mystery, edited by Julia Siemon (The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2017). The book is the product of a groundbreaking symposium held at The @metmuseum to examine the Aldobrandini Tazze, a set of twelve Renaissance silver-gilt tazze of mysterious origin, topped with statuettes of the Twelve Caesars. With contributions from experts in their fields, including Mary Beard, Michèle Bimbenet-Privat, Timothy Schroder and Ellenor Alcorn, this work casts new light on these extraordinary and intriguing masterpieces.
