In excellent condition, this antique micromosaic depicts ancient ruins. It is mounted in a goldstone surround which itself is mounted in a gold (filled or plated) setting. Late 1800's or very early 1900's. 1 3/4" x 1 3/8". Notice how the pin extends out from the setting - a true sign of an antique setting.
These type of Italian-made micromosaic pins were a 'must have' during one's 'Grand Tour' expedition.
This brooch is in excellent condition as the closeup photos show.
