Art Nouveau sash pin with two coiling snakes, a large amber glass centerpiece, and a thick ribbon border. Highly dimensional, this amazing brooch has a height of almost 1” as the serpents’ bodies unfurl across the entire surface. Their bodies are detailed with expressive heads and textural scales. The center stone is collet-set and gleams brightly, with no chips or flea bites. The background metal is imprinted with leaves and grape clusters. Impressive in size and attention to detail. Measures 3-3/4” by 2-5/8”, in fine condition. Someone applied a coating of gold over the c-clasp in back. Gilt brass, unmarked. Weighs 44.4g.
