A wonderful example of an antique Italian micro mosaic pin set in brass.
The ornate floral design has tiny tesserae and is a true micro mosaic.
The oval pin has a domed surface, the center oval has two roses, many daisies and green foliage surrounding the flowers.
The floral center is framed with two rows of white tiles, around the circle of flowers has a repetitive pattern. The next row is fine brass twisted wire, the rest of the border has three rows of geometric patterned tiles with four circles of red and white tiles in the center of each side.
Very well made and in excellent antique condition, no missing tiles.
Measures 1" by .75" by 3/8" in depth.
The brass setting is framed with very tightly twisted wire, the brooch 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 is not clear enough to read.
A delightful antique Italian micro mosaic pin c1880-1900.
