This is a lovely Victorian micromosaic frame in brass with blue flowers (forget-me-nots?) concentrated at the bottom of the frame and thinning out toward the top of the frame. Inside the frame is a hand-painted ceramic miniature of a beautiful young woman. The frame has toggles in the back to hold in the backing, a hinged brass T stand to allow the frame to stand up as in photo 2, and two little round ball feet in the front. There is a small chip in the edge of the miniature which is at about 7 o'clock and another little fleabite at about 4 o'clock - neither detracts from the beauty and charm of the miniature as they are both almost hidden by the edge of the frame. The size of the frame is about 2" x 2.5" not including the feet. There are a couple of tiny tiles missing from the frame but you really have to look to see them - for the most part it is in excellent condition.
