Fabulous vintage millefiori mosaic brooch features a red/white/blue checkerboard border. It resembles a flower garden in bloom surrounded by a checkerboard path .... so unique.
Mosaic pieces are encased in a gold tone frame, with an ornate rope twist border. Back is marked Made in Italy and has the older C type closure, with the pin stem extending a little beyond the frame.
Outer tiles consist of 8 tiny pieces formed into a tile of two rows of four. Viewing the pin, it gives the illusion of a micro mosaic with hundreds of very tiny glass pieces, but is not the very tiny detailed tiles that define a true micro mosaic.
Condition: Excellent condition, with no missing pieces. Shows normal signs of aging. Bright and vivid colors.
Measurements: 1 3/8 inches by 1 inch.
