Scarab

 

$95.00


For Sale is a beautiful Art Glass Scarab Paperweight. The Green Favrile, Aurene Iridescence or Luster is just outstanding. You can see deep beautiful Golds, Greens and Blues. The Scarab is 4 5/8" long, 2 7/8" wide, and is 1 5/8" tall. The Scarab is made of a dense Lime Green base glass and can only be seen with a bright light along its edges. The Scarab has a metallic look, yet it is glass.

Tiffany Studio's produced smaller versions to decorate their large Floral Leaded Glass Shades. Tiffany also used a version similar to this in some of his Table Lamps and Shades. Instead of being a solid piece of glass the inside was hollow as to allow for a socket to house a bulb to illuminate it.

True Glass was first developed by the ancient Egyptians to imitate the semi-precious stones used extensively in their artwork. It was often cast in shapes such as the Scarab for use as Amulets and Good Luck Charms. The Egyptians associated the Scarab Beetle with the creator god Khepri, the symbol of Birth and Eternal Life. This Art Glass Scarab is an example of the original Egyptian Scarabs.

The Scarab is considered to be in Excellent to Mint condition. The Scarab is no signed and it is of contemporary make. The paper weight has no cracks, chips, nicks or dings. This is a must buy for anyone who collects Scarabs or Paper Weights. The paper weight weighs about 1 1/2 pounds and I am sure should if a gust of wind came along you will not loose your paper work. Purchase with confidence as this will enhance any art glass collection.
