This charming beetle is quite likely an incense burner but he could equally have been a match safe.

He is very nicely cast from brass and being a Scarab he is designed to bring good fortune and protection to your household.

In today's home he would be very useful as a little keepsake box.

His condition is very good to the exterior with the usual expected surface signs of age and wear. Inside, he is dirtier and his years of use use are apparent. His hinge is good and strong and he has no repairs or damage.

A very attractive, good quality item which would look equally as good on a desk to house your paper clips or on a mantle or dresser.

Please look at the photographs for clarification of quality and condition.
