Art Deco Amethyst Garnet Paste Adjustable Snake Bracelet
Outstanding and coveted antique Art Deco snake bracelet, circa 1920. Garnet red paste gemstones form the eyes with the top of the head having a faceted purple amethyst paste glass stone. The life like textured head joins a thick 4.35mm serpentine chain that ends with a coiling snake tail. The tail forms a slide with the head having a paste studde charm dangling from its mouth. This is VERY impressive to say the least and very collectible! The Romans interpreted the snake as a symbol of everlasting love.
Materials: Gold gilded base metal
Gemstones: Amethyst paste, 2 garnet paste rhinestone eyes, clear paste
Measurements: 18 inches from tip of head to tail. The bracelet slips over the wrist and can be adjusted by pulling the head through the tail.
Weight: 50 grams
Condition: Excellent with a nice patina to the gold gilded metal, no wear and no verdigris. The tail forms a secure adjustment to any length you would like. A smashing vintage Art Deco piece of jewelry!
