This is a hand held micro mosaic picture frame from Italy . It was made in the 1920s and contains hundreds of glass tile miniature pieces that make up the floral motif. This is an unusual piece because it can be hand held or hung from a small flip up hook in the top. The frame measures 7 1/2" long and it is 3 3/4" across at the frame portion. The condition is excellent and it is perfect for gift giving to a collector of Italian Micro Mosaics. It could be fitted with a mirror rather than a photo is you prefer.
Art & Antiques from Victorian through the 1950's and slightly beyond
The retailer in me wants more dimension, color, texture and artistry. Beauty or whimsey are a must.
