A striking antique natural stag beetle head/horns mounted on an embellished plated gold case.

It measures approximately 4.4 cm by 2.2 com and it weighs approximately 1.26 Grams

This victorian sensational and highly unusual scarab beetle mandible is very special. A rare example of an antique complete mandible/head. (I have sold in the past antique single beetle horns, this is the first time I have a full mandible.)

In good antique/used condition, this charm has some small signs of age - to which in my opinion only add to its true beauty. (Antique items are almost always pre-worn and will typically have some level of wear). It's a delicate antique piece with no visual damage.
Please refer to images for condition and further details.

The chain on image 8 is just used as a reference.

In ancient Egyptian culture the scarab was a symbol of immortality, resurrection, transformation and protection, in South America beetle horn's charms were used, in the 18th and 19th century as amulets agains bad luck. And still in South America charms bracelets with such pendants become fashionable once again in the 1950s and 1960s.
