Definitely hand made and definitely different, Aluminum snake head with a hinged cage with a handle that lifts off the eyes and nostrils. It is on a spring mechanism. I don't know what the thought was. Second photo shows the snake with the cage lifted off. It is 7 1/2" long and 3 1/4" wide. The snake head is hollow. The eye covers are slitted and are painted gold. One of the brads that holds the hinge is missing.
