Art Nouveau Silver Maiden and Snake Pendant*
Silver pendant necklace in the form of a young long-haired Art Nouveau maiden in profile, with a partially enamelled snake coiled around her, the snake’s face just inches away from hers.
A good baroque pearl is suspended below.

On the original chain which measures around 48 cm in length. The pendant and drop is a tiny fraction over 3.5 cm long.
