Art Deco Sterling Black + White Enameled Flexible Wrap-Around Snake Bracelet
A beautiful and unusual snake bracelet from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! This fabulous piece is crafted in sterling silver and depicts the body of a slithering serpent which coils beautifully around the wrist. The exterior of the body is textured with delicate round discs that connect together to represent scales. Each "scale" is covered in gorgeous black and white enameling, creating an alternating pattern of fantastic contrasting rows. The head of the snake has a three-dimensional design with carved detail, black eyes, and a parted tongue that peeks out from its mouth, where sharp "teeth" are visible from the sides. The bracelet has a flexible design, allowing it to slip on and off without the need for a clasp and adjusts to the size of your wrist accordingly. A fabulous everyday piece for the fashion conscious woman, it is perfect for any snake lover and would make a striking addition to any collection!
Measurement: The opening of the bracelet (where your wrist would rest) is slightly adjustable, with the smallest size measuring slightly more than 1 1/4" in diameter. When stretched, the bracelet expands to approximately 1 7/8" in diameter. When worn, it would best fit a small to average sized wrist.
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is great. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting.
