Old Soapstone Locust Bug Fetish
On Hold for Dan Offering for sale a wonderful old fetish, carved of fine soapstone. It is, we think, a locust bug, and is 2 & 1/8" long. We acquired this from a local collector / dealer ; he had bought several from a prominent local antiques collector who was also head of a museum, most of his collection went to the museum at his death with just a few pieces being sold to friends before. We were told it was 19th century, but it may not be that old, we are just not sure ourselves but do know it is old; we have kept it ourselves over thirty years before offering it for sale. Nice carving details on both top and bottom, and in good condition with wear from age as expected.
