Vintage Flowers on Black Micro Mosaic Decorated Round Golden Pin Brooch, Made in Italy
Description: A beautiful and very well made vintage micro mosaic pin brooch. The round brooch is decorated with a micro mosaic (pieces of colored glass put together to form a design) floral design on a black background. The design shows a pink flower with yellow center, a red flower with yellow center and a blue flower with a yellow center. There are green leaves with white tips in the background. The entire design is surrounded by a black background. The edge of the brooch has a delicate golden wire filigree. The piece is rather bright gold and has a pin on the back that swings into a locking mechanism. A very nice and well made piece of costume jewelry. Please carefully review the photos as they are part and parcel of our description.
Date: Uncertain, but most likely sometime 1940's to the 1960's could be a bit later.
Origin: Purchased at an estate sale in southeastern Pennsylvania. The piece was made in Italy.
Size: Measures ~2 7/16" in diameter. The piece weighs ~0.5 ounces.
Marks: Marked "ITALY" on the back.
Condition: The brooch is in excellent condition given its age and utilitarian function. It has some minor soiling and a few minor scratches to the bezel. The piece has no losses, chips, or breaks that we could see. The pin and the locking mechanism are intact and work very well. It is bright, beautiful, and would make a great addition to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
