Vintage Italian Large Oval Micromosaic Pin


Large vintage Italian oval-shaped pin with detailed micromosaic made of tiny colorful glass tiles set in a floral pattern surrounded by a blue background of tiles and a line of tiny flowers that run around the edge.  The art of micromosaics can be traced back to ancient Roman times, and small micromosaic souvenirs were popular during the Grand Tour period and continue to be collected today.

Condition is very good with all tiles intact and a nice aged patina to the brass back.  Marked "Italy" on the back.

Dimensions: 2” wide x 1.25” tall
