Such a curious curio! That is why I love this Victorian chalkware scarab.
It is hand carved the Victorians enjoyed exotic things during the Egyptian revival period, scarab beetles could often be found at this time especially in jewellery.
It is rustic in look with some scratches on the surface and underside, a couple of chips here and there but no visible repairs or chunks missing, the underside has hieroglyphics underneath.
It would make a fantastic paperweight or desk ornament.
A very unusual antique ornament from the heart of the Darwin era.
Approx 4.5" in length and 2" height 2" width.
A lovely collectors piece in good condition.
