Grand Tour Micro Mosaic Brooch Pendent 14 K Gold Onyx Museum Quality Circa 1840-1850
As is usual with early jewelry the gold is unmarked but tests to a minimum of 14K yellow gold. Te finely crafted and detailed gold mount is in fine condition as pictured with one small indent in the back of the mount where the name "Mary F. Porter" is inscribed in script. A pendent stick pin offers extra security or an option of wearing as a scarf or neck lace ornament. The brooch clasp is early and original. The black onyx which encases the micro mosaic scene have the characteristic age cracks from expansion that is seen in this type of jewelry. (See Photos) The onyx is softly polished and in no way detracts from the beauty of the scenic ruin. The miro mosaic brooch measures 2 inches by 1.75 inches and features the early clasp pin that extends far out from the brooch (a characteristic of an early pin brooch).
