    Kiwipaul wrote once about the "London bus effect":
    You're waiting and see none in hour and then two at same time :-)

    I wanted one of those for a long time, all I watched on EBay went for way too much!

    The yellow and purple glass one was bought damaged from France at cheapest, repaired today and arrived another, from France too, bought at affordable price!

    What is amazing is they are English.
    You can see the similarities and difference between them, I think they are from same maker but different era.
    The last one isn't glass, there is no bubbles in it, crystal!

      These are so charming! I thought the darker was amber till I red your text. How small are they?
    2. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Thank you Elisabethan! Sorry to have forgotten to tell the size!
      They are 1.1/4 inch or 3.5 centimeters long :-)

      Many, many thanks to the 10 bugs lovers :-D
      Scott, I was very lucky to get mine way cheaper, thank you so much for taking time to visit and leave your lovely comment!
    7. Celiene Celiene, 5 years ago
      I love them, too. Look at the feet on the new one! And I like the way they twisted the square silver legs. Interesting 'twist' on the theme!
    8. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 5 years ago
      these look like weevils to me. nice!
    9. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Thanks friends, they are very special :-)
      Weevils have this kind of trunk too, you'really right Ho2cultcha !

      Kyra I had to take my milk glass vessel necklace post down, the vessel beads were positioned one way which is completely bad design and wrong. Will repost when I fix. I didn't even realize until I saw the photo. LOL!

      Hi Kyra, as my Brit buddy told me the expression it goes: "Just like a London bus, you never see one, then two come along at once!"

      More cool critters!
    12. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Paul, I just love this so true saying :-)
      Thank you for posting the original, and for your kind comment!
    13. Agram.m Agram.m, 5 years ago
      Love them both, very unusual they are English.
    14. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Thank you Marga for loving the new bugs :-)
      I would love to see what other kind of stuff their maker did :-)
    15. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 5 years ago
      kyratango, what beautiful beetles! I love comparing the differences between them, so interesting to wonder if they really were made by the same maker. The one in the link is exceptional as well, beautiful colors. How lucky you are to own two of these bugs, well done you!! :)
    16. vintagelamp vintagelamp, 5 years ago
      I love them, but of course you know that! Beautiful!
    17. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Katherine, I'may very glad and still amazed to have been able to catch them! Thank you :-)
