A delightful vintage Italian mosaic pin made with glass tiles called 'tesserae'.
The mosaic has a pretty bouquet of roses in different colors and a forget-me-not with green foliage surrounding the flowers, the background is a bright tangerine orange.
The mosaic is set in a gold tone bezel wrapped with a very fine twisted wire embellishment.
There is an outer frame of coiled wire that is flattened to create a scalloped edge. The openwork gives the pin a feeling of lightness.
The pin measures 1.5" in diameter, the mosaic is 1&1/8" in diameter.
Excellent, very clean condition, no damage or wear, secure safety clasp.
Marked Italy on the back.
