An unusual Victorian Scottish silver and agate brooch in the form of an entwined snake. It is beautifully made with a bloodstone head and small cabochon garnet eyes.The silver has been chased in between the stones. The snake meant “Eternal love” so it most likely would have been a gift from an admirer or a husband.
