    I have no idea of this type of Jewellery. I believe it is made of tiny tiles and called Mirco Mosaic, Im not sure if the metal is Silver Gilt or Brass. It is quite heavy and 1 1/2 inches long by 1 inch wide. I think it may be Victorian.
    It certainly looks very colourful.
    Any information would be great.
    Many thanks for looking

      Very nice Mosaic brooch indeed. It is called mosaic because the tiles are not so tiny than of the older so called Micro Mosaic pieces.

      Thank you Agram.a I'll pass on the information, this brooch isn't mine it belongs to a friend, I'm sure you'll be very interested in what you have said. :-)

      Hi Agram.m, would I be correct in dating this around 1890s.
    14. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 7 years ago
      Hi Sean, many thanks for the love.
