A fabulous antique gold base metal snake buckle dating to the late 19th century. The snake features a wash of black enamel stripes with little purple paste eyes and a sweet forked gold tongue.
I noticed that there was a tiny hole next to the head of the snake so have added a small glass heart charm that I think matches perfectly.
The buckle is in good antique condition.
