Austro-Hungarian Snake Pendant*

Item Description

Very unusual, striking looking silver pendant crafted as a coiled snake with its wide-open mouth holding a pink tourmaline gemstone.

Enamelled in realistic fashion so as to accent the scales of the snake’s skin and further decorated with little faceted tourmalines and green enamel.

The pendant hangs below a pearl suspender, with two tiny seed pearls at the base of the chains, and is completed with an offset drop set with three more pearls.

Late 1800’s and, unsurprisingly for its age, showing a little wear to part of the enamel but we reckon this is acceptable and haven’t been tempted to have it restored. In typical Austro-Hungarian fashion it is enamelled on both sides.

Length from the pearl suspender to the base of the drop is 7.5 cm and the necklace chain, with its unusual clasp, measures 48 cm.
