    I bought this nice micro mosaic dagger brooch a while ago. I think it dates from around 1900, as the tesserae are very tiny. I included some of my micro mosaic jewelry from around the same period on the last picture. The dagger is marked with something which looks like: FAF on its back. Any idea about iwhat that means? I m sure its made in Italy as most micro mosaic was made there.

      OOOH, love the dagger!!! F A F must be the maker, of course, you're right for Italian :-)

      Very nice dagger. It's isn't FAF but F.A.P. the Italian factory made this kind of mosaic in the late 19th first half 20th century.
