But since we are on the subject, there are two other lovely snake-related pieces I collected for your viewing pleasure as well.
This gorgeous piece was auctioned by Sotheby's recently. Made of turquoise, pearl, gold, and rubies, some lucky feme fatale scandalized and tittilated society by flaunting this around her ivory neck at the turn of the 1900s. Can you imagine getting your Cleopatra on to go to a ball in this?
Lastly, there is this brooch. It would be the perfect piece for tea with people whom you find poisonous.
