This Art Nouveau snake brooch has entwined snakes or lizards (yes they have feet) amidst a raised relief floral background studded with 3 blue and 2 coral color gem stones. Very exotic and unusual. Reference notes on Victorian designs state "Salamanders, Lizards =Passionate Love (it was believed the animals could survive fire)"
family piece
measures 2 1/8th " diameter

There are no markings. The back appears to be a heavy metal. I believe the top could be part silver. This is an old family piece of jewelry I am not sure of it's origins.
