This Mosaic Brooch is complete, no tesserae missing, and is in Excellent Condition. Please also note that the brooch has the older style closure which continues to hold the pin securely. This 1" round Micro Mosaic brooch has a wonderful choice of colors and a detailed border. The background is almost slate blue with green undertones. A duo of roses; one pink and one red are at the center. The outer border adds a touch of light green.
There are two of these pins with matching backgrounds listed and being sold separately though a few photos have been included here to show them together. According to the previous owner, these were originally purchased at the same time on one of her trips to Italy (she estimates "around the 50's"). This listing is for the smaller of the two round pins and is unmarked as is often the case with the smaller brooches. Please see all of the Italian Micro Mosaic Pins listed in this shop.
*IF YOU PURCHASE THIS PIN AND THE SIMILAR LARGER ONE , YOU WILL RECEIVE A 10% DISCOUNT (or refund) off of both pins plus of course the savings on shipping.
