This Egyptian Revival bronze scarab or beetle is a fine depiction of the sacred object of ancient Egypt. This sculptural paperweight is a vintage replica of an ancient original from a tomb.
The scarab measures 3 1/4 by 2 1/8 inches across the base. It's 1 1/2 inches high. It weighs over 13 ounces. It's solid and heavy...just the well-made piece to top off a pile of desk top papers.
The bottom of the paperweight is embossed with intriguing hieroglyphic writing. The overall bronze patina is smooth with a Modernist detailing at the front and around the sides.
This unusual paperweight is in excellent vintage condition with no notable wear. Circa early 20th century with lots of ancient history behind it.
