Horn carving work - onyx silver poison ring - skull + snake

Rare rosary in a very unusual style In very good condition. 10 olive-shaped horn pieces are in the rosary, which ends in a large silver ring. Between these vertebrae pieces are horn beads, which are black. The ring is a so-called poison ring, whose front face can be opened to reveal a cavity to hide a powder capsule or a pill - an opal is mounted on the front (2.5 x 1.3 cm). The other end of the rosary is a top-quality horn carving, which depicts the fleeting nature of life (memento mori). (Skull with a snake with a wide open mouth) This horn carving alone (buffalo horn) is 5.5 cm tall and 4.5 cm long and has been beautifully made. Total length: 43 cm Ring diameter: 20 mm
