Fabulous vintage snake brooch in laminated plastic, large and colorful. This gorgeous reptile seems to glow with its deep gold or amber hue, punctuated by rich black spots. Its eyes are clear rhinestones and there are four silver cabochons at its tail. Metallic gold lines run through it.
The snake measures 3-1/4" long and has a secure safety clasp on the back. The reverse is pearly white on the surface, but the snake is translucent/transparent when held to the light.
While the pin bears some resemblance to the jewels of Lea Stein, it can't be easily attributed to her. I'm not a plastics expert, so I searched online for a similar piece and found none. The clasp on the back doesn't match the Lea Stein V-shape, and it is attached with a strong adhesive, not riveted.
