You know my greatest fears are... spiders and insects!
You know too these in collecting jewelry are my greatest obsession ;-)
So, this 8cm/3" wide specimen had to be part of the hoard!
No marks, only flaw is a slight bump on the body.
Very realistic (as far I can say, lol), even carved hairs on his legs!!!
I think end of 19th/beginning of 20th.
Mystery is what maker and how did it survive with all its legs till now... the only one I found similar in making is tiny, many legs missing, link to it in first comment.
