VERY GOOD: This antique French Silver floral snake brooch is in wonderful condition for its age. French antique Silver is very collectable, and both the flower and the snake are in great shape. There is some minute general surface wear, and the pin is a little wobbly, however, we are confident that this piece can be worn on chunky fabrics like your favourite knit or tailored blazer.
