German silversmith Deodat von Kliest made this smiling snake bracelet in the 1950s. 3/8" at the widest and 1/8" at the tail. 7 1/2" interior circumference at the moment but is flexible. Marked Deodat V. Kliest around a shield with 2 horses? and a fence or banner and 835.Excellent vintage condition, but slightly out of round. I had never heard of this artisan, but I found several items on the internet. The most interesting information is that I found was that he comes from a very large and famous family.
