SPECIAAL VOOR GEA:
This is a Micro Mosaic vermeil brooch with the silver hallmark of 1872 - 1933 from the Republic of Italy with this text: Optional National Marks. The crowned heads were optional Marks and silversmiths were not required to have their work assayed and stamped, consequently these Marks are not often found on Italian silver of the period.
Also this brooch is goldfilled. And in the colors of black, white and green with a lot of symbols as often used this period of time: Dove for love and piece; Anchor for faith and hope; Bunch of grapes a darling symbol of eternal love.
