Exquisite antique micro mosaic pin in the form of a musical instrument, either a balalaika or a mandarin. The lovely Italian micromosaics that were brought back by many as souvenirs from their European Grand Tour have certainly enriched our country's fine jewelry. . This is so lovely, truly a treasure. Photos don't do it justice.

Country of Origin: Italy.

Medium: Micromosaic (Micro Mosaic)

Size: 1 7/8 inches long.

Condition: Very Good to Excellent Antique Condition. I could not find any missing tessera. The metal shows age. It closes well with safety style clasps.

Circa: 1890 - 1910. (This style safety clasp was used between 1890 and 1910.)

**Please note that the physical colors of this item may vary from the pictures in the listing, given the quality of the camera and the lighting.
