    This sweet pin was a gift from my old boyfriend Tony's grandmother 25 yrs ago - He gave it to me because no one in his family liked old jewelry. I suppose that could change. If he has a daughter I'll give her this - I've had it 25 yrs - I wouldn't mind passing it along to the next (4th!) generation. .75" art nouveau or deco?

      A nice little brooch. I suppose it is indeed about the 1930's. If you look at all my micro mosaics jewelry published on CW you can see that in general how tinier the tesserae how older the piece.
    2. valentino97 valentino97, 8 years ago
      Yes - these pictures are enlarged and the tesserae is VERY tiny. I am sure many workers lost their eyesight creating these. Thank you for your comments. I really love your examples - especially the beetle you recently posted. Your collection is great!

      Thank you to new viewers of this. It's not near as precious as Agram's amazing collection but my best example.

      Thank you BelleEpoque, Catteann and aghcollect for the love.
