This realistic and large bumblebee brooch is the first I have seen made of a genuine quartz tiger's eye scarab. Marked 14K and signed by Bickson, Inc. of NY (formerly Henry S. Bick & Co.), it was made in the 1950-1960's, and it is in excellent condition. The extra little details on the wings add to its charming appearance.
The overall dimensions of the brooch are 1 1/16" long by 1 1/2" wide. The scarab measures 14.5mm by 11.82mm. It weighs 8.2 grams.
