Vintage silver snake brooch with marcasite

This silver snake is about 10 centimeters long and set with rose cut marcasite. Tiny pieces of pyrite actually, with a shiny metallic look. The snake has bright orange eyes which are made of glass.

Wonderfully creepy because of both the movement in the design and the look in its eyes. Did you also take a good look at the side and the tongue? The brooch contains so many details. I am a big fan! And not just during Halloween.


Price: €450
Vintage: 1970s
Material: silver with rose cut marcasite and orange glass
Condition: really good, two tiny pieces of marcasite are missing (you only notice this when you really look for it)
