A new addition to the bugs hoard...
This one had some lacking tesserae, but beeing in its original domed case and beautifully mounted in etruscan style gold (unmarked)...
I had to have it :-D
5/8" or 1.7cm motif length,
3" or 7.5cm whole pin.
The case wears on the inside silk, in an oval stamp in gold, the retailer's name and address:
BENZIE 61 HIGH STREET, COWES around a crown.
Kyratisation: a tiny patch of white polymer clay, incised and baked, then some ashes to blacken the incisions.
