To celebrate the 1963 release of Liz Taylor's "Cleopatra", Hobe created this intricate bracelet comprised of 4 open work panels with an enameled Cleopatra profile, royal sarcophagus, Sphinx, and Blackamoor face with earrings. Tiny green snakes raise their heads in the corner of each panel.

The orange and olive triangles test positive for Bakelite.. The detail on the raised heads of 4 snakes is so authentic, you can see the snakeskin pattern!

This particular bracelet is an ESPECIALLY SCARCE version as the bakelite comes in two colors, whereas, most versions just have one color. $185
