This pin has been in my personal collection for years, but it is time to let someone else enjoy this beautiful miniature work of art. There are a lot of these mosaic pieces around, but this piece is especially lovely because the workmanship is on a master artisan level. The mosaic features an array of flowers in a variety of colors and the is details are beautifully rendered and incredibly realistic. Every tile appears to be present which is amazing, considering the age of the brooch. It's truly a superb little creation.
The pin measures 1-1/8 inches in diameter. It is marked "Italy" and "800" and is in excellent vintage condition with all tiles present and with a great deal of patina on the silver backing. I believe that the clasp is a replacement.
