Superb very large and rare Etruscan revival micro mosaic bouquet
sterling locket pendant from mid 1800’s.
The micro mosaic life like bouquet is made of tiny glass tesserae (tiles)
painstakingly cut into blue glass plaque.
The plaque is set in the bezel trimmed with Etruscan granulation and cannetille pattern.
A large picture compartment on the back covered with glass.
The whole pendant is 2 3/4” long with filigree bail.
The dangle measures 2” X 1 1/2” including the eye ring.
There is no hallmarks, tested sterling.
Total weight is 23.2 grams.
Excellent antique condition commensurate with age.
There is a hair line on the blue background on the 9 o’clock direction.
It does not appear on the back of the plaque and does not affect its soundness.
The old jewelry box shown for display only.
