When I saw this Micro Mosaic brooch/pendant for the first time and it was said that it was Pietra Dura I knew immediately ": That I want try to obtain". There were two reasons for this:
1. I never saw a picture like this in Micro Mosaic
2. the Micro Mosaic is very fine from which I conclude that this must be a very old Micro Mosaic jewel.
I suppose this brooch/pendant is set into gold plated over silver but this I could not prove yet. The earlier owner called this image: Bacchantin which means: female bacchant, a female priest or devotee of Bacchus, god of wine (Roman Mythology)
I am very happy with this rare Micro Mosaic brooch as you will understand. You agree or can you tell more about the image or other interesting facts? I like to hear it very much because I apppreciate the opinion of you very much!
