This darling coiled cobra has a sneaky secret. The top flips open to reveal a tiny compartment where one might hide toxins for an enemy. Made by Arthur Pepper in the 1960's, this whimsical poison ring was part of a line of enameled snake jewelry including bracelets, earrings, brooches, artfully crafted in varying shapes and color schemes. A collectible piece of jewelry history.
Gilt metal and resin with faux gems. Marked ART. Adjustable band fits up to a size 7. Good condition. Note: the hinged top functions but the lid does not snap tightly closed. Wear with care.
The idea of snakes and poison pair well, naturally. Which are the most dangerous snakes on Earth? Among the top snakes to avoid: Africa's Black Mamba and Boomslang, Australia's Eastern Tiger Snake, Latin America's Barba Amarilla, the Banded Krait, an Inland Taipan, and of course the fearsome King Cobra who has enough venom to kill an elephant.
