A cobalt blue background frames a colorful floral center on this Micro Mosaic Pin. An older style closure holds the pin securely. The centered roses are red and pink with green petals and a touch of white added in. The 1" round brooch is in Excellent Condition with all of the little mosaic "tiles" (Tessare) in place.
There are two of these pins with matching backgrounds being listed and sold separately. 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 LARGER BLUE ONE SIMILAR TO THIS, YOU WILL RECEIVE A 10% DISCOUNT (or refund) off of both pins plus of course the savings on shipping.
