Antique micro mosaic heart pin marked FAP with C clasp circa 1900. This outstanding antique pin features glass tessare embedded into a brass mount and is completely hand made. The tessare are extremely tiny and lay flush to the pin indicative of its age. Newer 20th century vintage hears have much larger glass pieces that stick out and are not flush. The pin is signed on the back with an impressed FAP mark. This stands for Fabrica Angelo Pessar or Pessarisi. Fabrica means factory and Angelo Pessar or Pessarisi was a jewelry artisan in Florence. This item was sold to Victorian tourists on their Grand Tour of Europe. I have examined the pin under a loop and do not see any missing or damaged tiles.

Date: 1900 or earlier. C clasp

Marks: FAP Fabrica Angelo Pessar impressed mark on back

Size: Approximately ¾ by 7/8 inches

Condition: Excellent condition with no loss of tiles
