Late Georgian carved natural deep orange coral serpent wrap bracelet. The piece is composed of carved scale sections and a very detailed head complete with tongue and teeth. Running through the coral is a metal strip that makes the piece wrap around the wrist. Because the scales move to accommodate being wrapped you do occasionally see a tiny bit of the metal strip.This piece will fit from a very small to M/L wrist because it is flexible and wraps around.
The coral color varies on the serpent head. The head was carved in such a way that the orange serpent has a pale yellow collar. The scales are scalloped making some of the flaws or wear in the coral less noticeable. There are several chips throughout the bracelet. Two or three are fairly large, but because of the way the coral is carved they don't detract from the beauty and power of this piece. The serpent tongue has a tiny chipped tip that is not noticeable and mentioned for accuracy only.
The bracelet is 13" long, The serpent head measures 31MM x 13MM. Largest serpent segment is 8mm 10mm graduating to 5mm x 3mm.
Weight is 34.7 grams giving the bracelet a substantial feel. Exceptional coral serpent bracelet that is rare and finely carved!
