Superb old Tin wind-up BEETLE......we cannot see any Makers Mark but it appears very similar to those made by LEHMANN in Germany circa 1885-1900. The Beetles body measures 6 1/2" in length and nearly 3" in width...not including the legs. There are ample age signs to the body but it is complete and works well ...scuttles along and raises and lowers its wings also. Pretty Freaky really!! But a great collectors piece.
