Absolutely fabulous Art Deco era Snake chain possibly the slinkiest and dare we say sexiest Serpentine chain we’ve seen in quite some time!
This chain needs to be felt to be believed… snake, or sometimes called Brazilian chains, are articulated chains with wavy links composed in such a way that form a flexible smooth chain that moves in a snake like manner, and have the added bonus of feeling wonderful against the skin.
His adorable head is in multi-coloured Closionne enamel with reds, greens, white and vibrant blue all inlaid in a rosy hued finish, and to the verso textured snake scales.
The push in clasp is cleverly designed with two little prongs which once inserted serve as two little charming fangs giving this one such an appeal!
Measuring a pleasing 41 cm in length this hard to find Deco era Snake receives compliments whenever he is seen.
Head of snake - 2.4cm x 9.4mm
Tested via XRF as a mix of metals including low carat gold, brass, copper etc
Very good condition with some tiny losses to enamel here and there only. Clasps perfectly and securely. Snake chain has the colour and hue of gold, resembles lush 9ct. Head of snake is more a rose gold hue, by design, ‘tongue’ clasp is in silver, just lovely.
