This is an extremly example of very old Micro Mosaic and I'm very glad to show you "my private dancer" brooch.
It's a large brooch of 2.5 x 2 " ( 6 x 5 cm) set in at least 18 K gold. It's a pity but as so many of this kind of jewels you can see there is a crack at the back site of this brooch. But it did not harm the Micro mosaic work.
How older the Micro mosaic the finer the tesserae. If you take a look at the very fine made tesserae the dancing man was made this is a work of art and patience. So all in all it's a quite old (1850s) very beautiful piece of jewelry. I would like to hear your opinion !
