Antique 14k Gold Cased Micro Mosaic Brooch: Tomb of Cecilia Metella

Fine antique micro mosaic brooch circa early-mid 1800's depicting the Tomb of Cecilia Metella; a 1st Century BC ruin. The center mosaic is set in black glass and encircled by a ring of flowers, with leaves and berries, tied with a red ribbon. The flowers are also tiny micro mosaics! The tesserae are very tiny, and the piece is a fine work of art! Condition is good; there is a hairline crack shown in the pictures, and 1 or 2 tiny tesserae seem to have been lost abutting the crack. The pin is very stable, set in bronze with a 14k gold casing. Comes with a box, not original or from the same period; but will serve to store the brooch safely.

Please see photos for dimensions and marks.
