Who are these little glass cats, anyway? Glad you asked! During the early 20th century, glass makers in Bohemia molded Bastet cat beads for use in Egyptian Revival jewelry, as the fashion world joined the mania set off by the discovery of Tut's tomb in 1929. Among the treasures of the tomb was a large lacquered figure of Bastet, the cat goddess of the Eastern Delta during the 22nd dynasty of Egypt. She represented the life-giving power of the sun.
