Ladybug Jewelry Box. A ladybug is not really a bug, but a beetle. In Russia, they are called "Божья коровка (Bozhya korovka)", which translates to “God’s little cow” and refers to the spots on the shell. The name "ladybug" came from European farmers who prayed to the Virgin Mary when pests began eating their crops. Ladybugs saved the day and wiped out the invading insects, after which the farmers named them "beetle of Our Lady." In Russian culture, as well as many others, the ladybug is considered good luck. The shell slides off to reveal that it's a small box. Elegant high quality enameling in the style of Peter Carl Faberge. Hand enameled on a pewter base then baked, polished and set with genuine Austrian crystal gems. Gift boxed. 2" x 1¼". Supply limited.
