Year of the Snake Cuff Bracelet Found at a Bargain Price

This is the Year of the Snake, per Chinese astrology. So.... snake accessories are a big trend. They're everywhere:

Here's a gold arm band up for bid on Antiquorum. Its value is $2,000 - $2,500.
Here's a gold plated one from Paris Hotel Boutique. It's from the early 1900s, and is priced for $250. 
Here's another version, from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, priced at $85.

I had the pleasure of visiting the Vineland NJ location of the Salvation Army recently. My favorite day to "hunt" there is Wednesdays, when 3 of the color tags are 50% off.

I was very pleased to find this two-headed snake cuff bracelet. Not bad for $4.99.

 It looks like 60s/70s vintage.
