This antique Italian brooch is called a Micro Mosaic. It was hand made of tiny glass pieces called tessare. It has a floral design in the center of each of the three circles. It has a gold tone or brass frame with an older style "C" clasp. A brooch like this is very sought after because of its fine artistic mosaic elements. The design is beautiful and the colors are still vivid. All the glass pieces are intact and the brooch is in excellent condition.
- Size: 1¾ x ½ inches
- Circa 1900's
