VICTORIAN antique snake bracelet 14 karat & garnet :

VICTORIAN antique snake coil bracelet with 14 karat yellow gold fittings, garnets and a woven hair band. It is approximately 14"(and wraps around the wrist of course) and it is 1/2" wide, with a snake head 2" long.  This is in amazing condition, as though it has never been worn, circa 1880. To see an original 1870 Hair Jewelry Catalogue with many examples of this work, please click HERE and a snake bracelet can be seen HERE.  A similar piece can be seen in the book "Jewellery in the Age of Victoria"  by Gere & Rudoe on page 168, where they have a page of photos of hair jewelry from the Victorian & Albert Museum. They say the pieces shown there are European. A similar pieces can also be seen in the book, "Warman's Jewelry" 2nd Edition by Christie Romero on page 24, where she also dates it 1870. And another is in her 3rd Edition of the same book on page 44, and that is dated 1840-60. NOTE: This will be shipped only to a USA confirmed address, and not to an overseas address or overseas forwarding address.   View   View
