Description

DATE: Georgian, c.1810

A striking Georgian necklace comprising a snake link chain and superb hand clasp. The clasp is modelled as a hand clutching a knotted serpent and wearing a ruby ring on one finger, at the cuff is an applied turquoise set crescent and foliate motif; the whole clasp, hand and snake, are wonderfully textured. Modelled in 15 karat gold throughout, the piece dates from the early 19th century - circa 1810 - and the chain gets gradually thinner as it approaches either side of the clasp.
