Vintage Italian Small Oval Micromosaic Pin


Small vintage Italian wide oval-shaped pin with detailed micromosaic made of tiny colorful glass tiles set in a floral and geometric pattern.  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. Nice aged patina to embossed brass back and surround. Marked "Made in Italy."
