Chanel Red Poured Glass Serpent Bracelet Goossens Gilt Metal Pate de Verre 1970

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This incredibly rare serpent bracelet was created by Goossens for Chanel in the early 1970s per Martine Goossens, who assisted her father in the creation of the "paste" or poured glass on this piece. I will include a copy of Martine's email confirming this information with the sale of this piece. Acquired from the estate of a former Chanel employee, this rare bracelet was crafted for one of the last haute couture shows before Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel passed away.

This piece can be worn as a bracelet, as shown in the photos, or as a pendant by looping the fastener bar through a rope chain. Either way, this piece will look fabulous! In excellent condition for its 40+ years of age, the gilt metal shows a patina and surface scratching from age and wear, and the glass shows some minor and tiny dings and surface scratching as you would expect from use over the years.

Stamped CHANEL on back of the serpents head, and measures a total length of 8in. Fastens by passing the gilt tail section through a loop under the serpents head.
