Antique Micro Mosaic pin was definitely crafted in Italy... possibly Etruscan Revival ~ Grand Tour era. Five section bar brooch frame is gold washed brass and instead of the usual 'twisted wire'... the top edge of the mounting is serrated. What makes this micro mosaic jewelry comprised of hundreds of multi-color tiny glass pieces (tiles) uncommon is what is depicted in the round center section - the Roman Colosseum (ruins).
100 + Year Old Italian micromosaic jewelry is unmarked as it should be for its age.... MEASURES ~ 1 3/4 Inches Long and is in NICE CONDITION! I have not cleaned or polished metal frame – displays OLD Patina. Etruscan style pin retains FULLY Functional "C" Clasp, Hinge & Pin Stem. There is one teeny, tiny tile missing in one of the teardrop shaped lobes - visible in my greatly magnified photos but barely noticeable when worn or displayed..... priced accordingly.
Would make an amazing addition to your antique micro mosaic jewelry or Italian brooch collection!
