Vintage to antique brooch with a superb design retaining the large center Amber glass flat back unfoiled in an open back setting. The holders look like two beetles that have two darkened paste stones on their heads. One is missing a piece of antenna and there is a small chip on the stone. This brooch has an Etruscan influence and Egyptian revival style. It has an early safety style clasp which may not be original to the piece. This one is quite a collectors piece and measures 2 x 1 1/4 inches.
