Brooch--Vintage Neo-Egyptian Cold-enameled Bronze with Winged Real Scarab Beetle
This is an early 20th c. (probably late 1920s) Egyptian motif bronze brooch with cold-enameled wings and a very iridescent real scarab beetle. You need to be on guard with these little scarabs--look for authentic old pieces--because they are reproduced in glass, little feet and all. The new glass doesn't have the iridescence of the real critters! I have collected them for years, so I promise, this is an oldie :) It measures 2 & 5/8" wide by 5/8" top to bottom.
Gender: Unisex, Age Group: Adult, Color: Green/gold/bronze, Size: 2 & 5/8 by 5/8"
