Unusually striking 1920s gilt metal double snake armlet

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This wonderful bracelet is a great rendition of a perennial theme. Normally single, this is a double headed example which makes it rarer. It has a lovely soft lightish gilt patina and fine quality engine turning on the body of the snakes. The heads are somewhat cruder, but no less appealing for it, giving the piece a handmade look and they are capped off with red bead eyes.
Although meant for the upper arm it looks great on the middle of the forearm as well. A true 1920s classic!
