    Thinking you are fed up with the mystery mark posts...

    I haven't post bugs nor kyratisations for a while, so... BUG AGAIN!

    Here is a beetle/bug fellow :-)

    25mm (1") long x 17mm wide (0.65") .

    He is too a watch pin, unmarked 14k gold, tiny pearls, diamonds and enamel. End of Victorian era.

    A big lack of enamel, one diamond missing: kyratised!

    Broken legs on left side are beyond my repairing ability to be cured...

      It says on the listing in the link that it was taken down because the item is no longer available. Hmmm ... Looked like new enameling and beads to me.

      Your bug is a beauty!!! I hadn't even noticed his missing leg. I'm sure you'll figure out a way to fix it. Maybe make a clay or rubber mold of the good leg and fill with epoxy, paint, attach with more epoxy? Although I think he's a very distinguished amputee. :)
    19. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Katherine, they were relisted, lol! And yes, the enamel is new on most!!! Some have broken legs too... same size as mine :-)
      And... thank you for your faith in my repairing skills :-D
      But there, the legs are too thin to me to do anything with epoxy... and as you said, the loss isn't noticeable at first glance...
