This is a Victorian period hand carved horn snake coiled bracelet. This serpent bangle bracelet has inlaid mother of pearl eyes. This traditional motif was popular during the era. This bracelet is carved from natural horn. This snake offers a curly Q tail, which you can see best in the very last picture. Snakes are thought to represent eternal love, protection, birth and perpetual regeneration. It measures 1/2 inch wide in the front The inside circumference is 8 inches, which is nice because this will fit a small or a large hand. The horn has a small amount of give so it is easy to pull over your wrist. There are no cracks or chips and it is a rich dark brown patina. It is actually much nicer in person than in the pics!
