This piece was removed from an old garment the 1930's-1940's. I always thought it was a belt but it could have been sewn to the garment. It is a Silk backed piece with tiny Turquoise semi-translucent glass beads, Hematite glass beads and flat backed Cobalt Blue and Amber Glass Beads. There is some loss around the front of what looks like the head of a snake but there are some extra beads tucked under the tail end that could be used for restoration. Measures 22 inches long by 3 1/2 at widest and just over an inch wide on the lengthy end. Cool old piece in very good vintage condition with issue noted.
Suggestion: If you like all the vintage snake items like rings and bracelets you can Hand Stitch this old gem onto a Vintage Garment over the shoulder or around a Handbag, even around an old hat for an unusual band.
