VIBRANT Multi-Color Floral micro MOSAIC Pin is ROUND... at first glance, I thought it was a button. The approximately 100 tiny glass pieces (tiles) are set in a gold washed brass frame with twisted “wire” running all the way around it. This C.1900 Handmade Italian MOSAIC pin is Very UNUSUAL because it is 3 Dimensional!
FIRMLY Set in the palette are tiny tesserae in Orange, Butterscotch Yellow, Cobalt Blue and 2 Shades of Green. Antique Mosaic jewelry has 2 different types of flowers; Daisy and Forget Me Not surrounded by leaves. 100 +/- Year Old Italian micromosaic jewelry is unmarked as it should be for its age. Victorian Era pin MEASURES ~ 1 Inch in Diameter and is in NICE CONDITION! I have not cleaned or polished metal frame – displays OLD Patina. Retains FULLY Functional "C" Clasp, Hinge & Pin Stem. I do not see ANY missing pieces even with a 10 Power jeweler’s loupe however; I can see a flea bite to a couple of the floral tiles around the edge & minute wear to the white border tiles around the center ... would not be noticeable when worn or displayed - mentioned only for complete accuracy.
Highly Collectible Antique Mosaic Brooch would make a GREAT GIFT or SUPERB Addition to your Floral, Italian Mosaic or Victorian Pin Collection!
