A miracle of craftsmanship from the past this wonderful micro mosaic brooch pin was probably made in the Biedermeier period depicting a beautiful bouquet of flowers. The beautiful Mikro Mosaik is framed by a gold border in the form of a graceful bow with sprigs of Laurel Bush. Four seedpearls are on each side of the border. The mosaic consists of different colored glass stones and is very fine edited. The rim is acid tested for 18 carat gold. The top of the loop is an old repair, but that is not to see on the front. The brooch is 4 cm high and 3 cm wide. Although not a set, as you can see a perfect match with the 18ct. Micro Mosaic gold ring.
I was surprised to see one of my Micro Mosaic brooches (also on this page, the peasant lady on a cushion) to see on a film about this subject. If you want to learn more you can link to: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/14896068
