Antique Victorian WOVEN SILVER SNAKE BRACELET Amazing Piece of Jewellery!





















Firstly... to really appreciate the item you need to ENLARGE the photographs...left mouse click ...they may look a differant colour due to the flash...the item you see will be the item you get.

Description 

Here is an amazing piece of antique Victorian jewellery, made up of fine silver wire and expertly woven to create this long SNAKE body, and the head has the woven pattern to match.  Look at the head of this snake, so well formed, with it's mouth open you can see its forked tongue and teeth.  It has 2 glass gems for eyes.

The tail is topped off with a cone shaped end.

Amazingly crafted, a lot of work has gone into this bracelet, all hand carved pattern to the snakes head too.

Coiled flexible snake bracelet which can be worn on the lower wrist, arm etc... I am told it dates to about 1880 or so and was also made in gold wire too.

Length is approx 29 inches!

The metal looks silver to me, not base metal, but I cannot find any marks on it.

It weighs approx 38 grams.

This bracelet on the whole is in nice condition, there are areas where the silver wire has broken and there are 'kinks' in the mesh, but overall, a good unusual rare piece of antique jewellery!

Please see close up pictures for more detail.

 

   The item(s) are shown next to an English 1 penny which is 20mm dia for scale.

Conversion ... approx... 2.5cm = 25mm = 1 inch
