A very charming oval micro mosaic brooch. Extremely fine and so pretty with each tile carefully set to make a picturesque and unique Art Deco brooch. The micro mosaic is set in gilt metal, set with glass tiles, and features a central pink cameo of a Roman goddess.
These micro-mosaic pieces were popular around the early part of last century, when travellers from the United Kingdom headed to Italy and Europe and brought back many dainty jewelled souvenirs.
I love this brooch! It is a wonderful work of vintage art in a lovely jewel!
This brooch was featured in a recent addition of GQ magazine as part of a shoot featuring men wearing brooches....It looked fab!
The brooch measures 2 cms by 2 cms.
