Massive Victorian French Diamond Gold Serpent Brooch

About

Extraordinarily crafted French serpent brooch from the mid 19th Century. The massive proportions and realistic detailing help to date this amazing 3 dimensional brooch. From the coiled position of the snake to the detailed hand etched scales on the body, this brooch is extraodinary in its quality, craftsmanship and condition. Surely an important French workshop of the period produced the gold work of this caliber. Rose diamond eyes. 1860's France. Approx. 5". Excellent condition.
