IMPORTANT PLEASE READ
I have recently acquired the remaining stock of a micro mosaic factory situated near Florence in Italy . This factory had to close down in 1969. The former owners had well kept in boxes all the remaining stock they had and I was lucky enough to be able to buy the total NEW OLD STOCK they had from the children of the owners.
All items date to pre 1969 and some are as old as 1950.
The workmanship of all these items is extremely fine - with real micro tesserae (individual tiles in a mosaic). Nothing compares with such a work today.
All have been cleaned. You will receive a perfect vintage item in pristine condition. A true rarity.
