Circa 1880 Victorian rolled gold brooch in a domed shape has a wonderful stylized design of two sinuous, connected coils evocative of a double serpent. As symbols of eternal love, both the serpent and the eternity or "love" knot were popular motifs in Victorian jewelry, and this brooch appears to fit within that sentimental genre.

The coils and frame are chased intermittently with a stylized design that suggests fern leaves, perhaps maidenhair fern, which in Victorian floriography symbolized a secret bond of love.

Measuring 1 ½" by 1 1/8" with a depth of approximately ½", the brooch has a tube hinge and c-clasp, with the pinstem extending ¼" past the edge of the brooch. The brooch is in very good condition, with darkening and wear to the metal back of the brooch, chiefly around the clasp and hinge, and slight looseness to the pinstem.
