Vintage Italian Micromosaic Trinket Box

Description

Sweet little vintage Italian metal trinket box with its hinged top decorated with an intricate micromosaic design of flowers and leaves set on a turquoise color background. The micromosaic is made of tiny colorful glass tiles set in a 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.

Marked Italy on bottom.

Condition is very good with all tiles intact and some minor wear to the metal consistent with age and use.

Dimensions:  2.25” round x 1.5” h
