This small beetle was made by The Denver Terra Cotta Company. It has a rich glaze that picks up highlights of dark green, subtle blue and brown. The scarab has simple detail and is compact in design. It would make a beautiful paperweight on an old arts & crafts desk. The bottom has a deeply incised circle with; The Denver Terra Cotta Co.. I believe it is from the 1930's but have found little information about the company.
It measures about 3 11/16" long by 2 5/8" wide and 1 ½" high and is in very nice condition with minor chips to the glaze, mostly around the bottom edge.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
