    Today I show you again a new addition to my Micro Mosaic collection. It's a small gold on silver plated (so called Vermeil) brooch with dove and on back an Italian optional hallmark, purity degree 800/1000.
    This is a brief history and a selection of Italian silver hallmarks from 1870 to present days.
    The documentation about this period of Italian silversmithing is extremely scarce and defficult to find. In 1870, with the conquest of Rome and the end of Stato Pontificio (Papal State), Italy attained its unity and a unique system of hallmarking was introduced in the Kingdom of Italy. The law 2 May 1872 deregulated silver production and introduced only a not compulsory inspection of silver artifacts.
    The last photo is of my Micro Mosaic little brooches collection.

      The mosaic work is wonderful and I am amazed at the metal work also.
      The twisted frame and the balls really appeal to me.
