Silver and vermeil bracelet "Bird defending its nest"

Openwork and cut silver bracelet 800 thousandths, traces of gilding (vermeil) and green enamel for the foliage, embellished with 22 garnets,
forming the motif of "the bird defending its nest against a snake", a bird with outstretched wings, placed on the branch of a leaf above its nest.
Work circa 1850, swan hallmark (silver 800) + owl hallmark 75 (18k gold) on the clasp and traces of old hallmarks on the back of the main motif,
this bracelet is an old transformation, forming an adornment with the brooch sold separately.
It is a post - romantic production in the style of Jules Wiese and Froment-Meurice: illustrating the theme of the protective bird, symbolizing maternal love, a theme dear to the romantics of the 1844th century (theme represented on "the harvest cup "from Froment-Meurice, 1845, Musée du Louvre, Paris and on a bracelet by Morel & Duponchel, XNUMX, Musée du Louvre, Paris).
Condition: very fine carving, missing two eggs (probably glass paste) in the nest + lack of green enamel + traces of vermeil in places + missing the security system (chain) of the clasp. This bracelet, which is worn, has not undergone any current restoration.
Dimensions: at the widest: 6 cm and total length open: 17 cm
Weight: 77 gr.
