Victorian Art Glass Micro Mosaic Floral Bracelet
Charming five panel bracelet is composed of itsy bitsy pieces of glass mosaic tiles known as tesserae. These micro mosaic tiles are affixed to rectangular metal which I believe to be brass. Originally, this bracelet was silver wash or silver-plated, but almost all of the silver coloring is gone, The oblong links that join each panel appear to be copper, as I can see some rosy colorpeeking through.
Design incorporates three floral motifs on each panel, with each motif framed within a raised rope like border. Bracelet is clean giving the glass tiles a lovely sheen. Hook clasp fastens from underside of bracelet, so it doesn’t really show.
Measures 7-3/4” x 5/8”. Condition is very good vintage. Colors seem to intensify or fade a bit, depending on the lighting.
