    Though I'm phobic of real insects, I couldn't let this one go...
    I was the only bidder on it, so...

    Whole brooch is 1.3/4" wide and 1.1/4 high.
    A neat item from the era!

    And one more critter ;-)

      Kyra how do they stop the scarab from degrading? Is is lacquered?
    7. kyratango kyratango, 7 years ago
      Hi Racer! No painting on it, only natural colors. The beetle is dried, as in the entomology shadow boxes.
      Victorian used rather these ones:
