This is a Victorian Era Brooch, made in Italy in the 1800's This is the real Micromosaic, if you did not know better you would have thought it was painted. It is almost perfect, the fine tesserae of glass are all in place. But there is two pin pricks in the Goldstone. I am assuming the the gold colored metal is gold filled, or Pinch-beck. There are 5 glass brilliants on the side and the Brooch is 2 1/4 X 1 3/4. Large enough to really make an impression. This will come in a velvet bag and gift box. Ready to give for that special person. For you from the High Plains of Kansas!
