A wonderful example of an antique Italian micro mosaic pin set in brass.
The repetitive floral design has tiny tesserae, the floral patterns are framed with tightly twisted wire.
The long bar has a domed surface, the pattern repeats itself nine times alternating the flowers with pin and white backgrounds.
Very well made and in excellent antique condition, no missing tiles.
Measures 2.5" by 5/16" by 3/16" in depth.
The brass setting is embellished with solid beads around the entire outside edge.
It has a wire C clasp and hinged pin stem, there is a hallmark on the back which looks like FMR.
A delightful antique Italian micro mosaic pin c1880-1900.
