A 19th century 18k yellow gold (tested) mounted Italian micro mosaic bracelet composed of seven rectangular blue glass plaques set with micromosaics, depicting full-length figures. Measures 7 1/8 inches long and almost 2 inches wide. Weight 79 grams. The lines you see in the blue glass on the back side of the glass are white colored glass not cracks. There are a very few tesserae missing and there is a repair to two rings or loops on the second panel frame that look like a lead solder (see photos). Figures dressed in regional folk costume were a popular subject for micromosaics. Many were based on engravings by Bartolomeo Pinelli (1781-1835) which had been published in Rome in 1816. It was a subject that was of interest to the traveller as he crossed Europe. All serious offers considered.
