UNUSUAL ANTIQUE VICTORIAN ENGLISH BENT TORTOISESHELL SNAKE BANGLE c1880
A super cute, fascinating and surprisingly high quality antique bangle! Made from a heat bent rib of natural tortoiseshell, it’s modelled as a snake encircling the wearer’s wrist. With a stylized flattened head and wonderful, superbly curved tail, it’s entirely hand made – with beautiful engraved scale patterning and bone inlaid eyes. Its elegant tapered body is surprisingly thick, giving a heft and chunky feel to the polished shell, which is ever so slightly flexible to ease putting on and taking off. The rounded edges give comfort, and it’s a warm natural material. Dating from around 1880, it measures 8.25 internal circumference and weighs 18.2 grams. It’s in excellent overall condition, with a tiny nick to one eye. What’s more, I offer layaway deals so there’s no need to let any of my listings slip through your fingers – just ask!
