For our snake lovers, we have two nearly identical Whiting & Davis classics: one wins for brightest scales, the other gets the sharpest teeth award. Buy both and wear them together for the best of both worlds! Ancient Egyptians often wore matching snakes and lions, one for each wrist, for symbolic protection (and fab style).
Both made by Whiting & Davis, circa 1960-80's. Whiting & Davis made these bracelets in varying styles for a century or more, along with other less common mesh beauties like our super rare eagle wrap (last photo) which is available in a separate listing.
Brightest Scales: shown on top in model photo and first four bracelet shots. Brighter finish, with a more yellow tone and darker oxidation in details, mark is clear. Open mouth shows teeth, just slightly less visible in this individual. Measures 5.5" as is, with plenty of room for expansion.
Sharpest Teeth: shown on bottom in model photo and last 3 bracelet shots. Mouth is more open, with sharp chompers showing clearly! Gold tone is more warm; finish and brand mark are worn. The W&D mark is faint, but we believe this to be genuine W&D, as the fine details of his mouth and face are crisp and the quality is good. Measures 6" inner circumference, also with plenty of room for expansion.
Venomous snakes have three types of fangs: long hinged ones at the front of the mouth that fold up for space [so efficient!], shorter fixed fangs, or small ones at the back of the mouth. Some of the folding variety are up to two inches long. Yikes.
