Beguiling bug! This elegant bug could win the
heart of the most determined bug hater. Just look at those wings!
Skillfully created from gilded brass and faceted red glass stones
that are prong set. He is a beauty from the folds of his gilded
wings to those sparkling ruby red eyes. Excellent condition with no
damage to either metal or glass. Not even the tiniest flea-bite.
All parts are original with no repairs. Signed 'Czechoslov'. This
bug is famous as well as gorgeous. He appears on page 126 of the
book 'Rainbow of Rhinestone Jewelry' by Lynn McMurray.(Item #10139)
