    Old micro mosaic brooch signed Italy found at an estate sale. The tesserae are pretty small so I think this is an old brooch 40s or 50s? Maybe even 30s?
    Best,
    Maureen

      Yes it is, agree w/above comments. These were sold through the mail for reasonable prices if you couldn't make it to Italy. Not exactly sure of the time frame though.

      I know nothing about micro mosaic, but to me they are little miniature works of art. The colors and design in this piece are so pleasant to look at. The little golden “ropes” add even more texture to the piece. ( see Agram.m’s collection!!)
      Beautiful Maureen!

      Jenni, six-o-one, foseatme, & Valentine97 - thank you for admiring this brooch! Valentino97, I didn't know they were shipped here, except in the 1960s, but by the the tiles were bigger. But it makes sense as to the Italy stamp on the back.

      Eileen, I have admire Agram.m's collection. I was looking at it a while back. So beautiful and antique! Much older, of course, than this example. There is an exhibit of micro-mosaic jewels currently on view at the Gibbs Museum of Art, Charleston, SC. Thanks for the love and admiration!

      Also thanks to the collectors, in addition to those above who loved this post:
