This is another small miracle of patience. This little flower Micro Mosaic star brooch is made of very tiny tesserae and set in Vermeil. The hallmark to see on photo 4 is an Italian silver hallmark from 1870 to present days. There is a digit beneath of an 1 (purity degree 950/1000), 2 (purity degree 900/1000) or 3 (purity degree 800/1000) indicates the silver content. But with the best microscope and wants of my hand, this is indecipherable. It's a cute little brooch with a diameter of 3 cm and beautiful finish of border that resemble stellar jets.
