Description

• One piece, new, thick brass die casting
• Hercules beetle/scarab
• All sharp edges have been rounded and smoothed.
• Lightly oxidized
• Polished to a high luster
• The patina is consistent on these; they're all the same color.
• Color of antique brass, luminosity of sterling silver (as shown)
• Art Nouveau Design
• Made in France
• 1 7/16 inches X 2 5/8 inches (37 X 67 mm), for a visual, see 3rd picture

THESE PROBLEMS WITH RAW BRASS, SOLVED:

• Raw brass oxidizes (develops a patina) naturally over time and becomes dirty which will transfer to clothing and skin. If you oxidize raw brass without polishing, you will quicken the oxidation process and the piece will be grimy. I've cleaned and polished these to a high luster and added a patina. The polishing inhibits the oxidation process but I recommend that you seal this piece with a microcrystalline wax or spray varnish before wearing.

• Raw brass stampings and die castings are sharp on all edges. All edges on these have been rounded and smoothed.

PROVENANCE:

This die casting has been made from an authentic, French, Art-Nouveau design. The tooling for this was created in c. 1900 France. The organic yet opulent, Art-Nouveau era has its origin in late 19th century and incorporates stylistic contributions from countries all over Europe and into Asia. Eventually it extended into all art genres and was world renowned.
