Exquisite antique Pietra Dura hard stone mosaic stickpin. Not marked, tested 18k with acid. Exceptional workmanship, amazing attention to detail. Beautiful picture frame bezel with a very fine twist of wire and granulated beaded edge. The pietra dura picture is incredibly fine for such a small size, the legs are the size of hairs!
The stone picture mosaic measures .5" by 3/8". The entire length of the stick pin is 3&1/8". The stones used include malachite, tiger eye and agate, I am not sure what the white background stone is. The quality of the mosaic and gold work are superb. Please view the large photos for best detail.
