A wonderful Grand Period Victorian Flower Pin in 18K Yellow Gold featuring a violet and snake, interwined amid two rings. Since ancient times, the snake has been a symbol of eternal love. The sentimental Victorians used the violet flower to symbolize faithfulness and modesty. This lovely piece may have been a gift to the bride from the groom.
The construction of the pin and hinge tells us this was mid 19th century or earlier.
