Here's a really stunning piece of craftsmanship and beauty. This pietra dura brooch has such incredible detail in these tiny stone pieces that make up the beautiful stone work in this antique pin. The subject is tulips which is very unusual in pietra dura pieces. The shading and the subtle colors of the leaves and the flower are so well done. It really is remarkable.
The brooch is 1 3/4" long by 5/8" wide. The stone inlay is in a silver setting with a lovely beaded edge around the frame. It has a "c" clasp appropriate to its age circa 1880.
This is a miniature piece of art to wear and enjoy.
