"Serpent" Brooch


circa 2019

galvanized copper

with a small metal tag impressed LALANNE

6½ x 4¾ x½ in. (16.5 x 12.1 x 1.3 cm)

Overall in very good condition. The galvanized copper surfaces present with scattered minor surface irregularities which are inherent to the making and the artist’s technique and minor oxidation consistent with the natural aging process of the metal. The copper surfaces throughout present with light abrasions, small discolorations and minor rubbing consistent with age and gentle use. A functional and highly naturalistic work.
