Antique Victorian Gold Micro Mosaic Insect / Fly Brooch - Rare Piece For Sale
This is a listing for a beautiful antique Victorian round micro mosaic brooch. The piece features a lovely insect design, which I think is a fly. The design is created by strategically placing teeny tiny tiles, of gemstones and metals, together to form the image. The craftsmanship is remarkable. I purchased the piece at an estate sale and the previous owner told me that the small, flat circle around the micro mosaic portion was real yellow gold. The piece is not marked so I cannot confirm if it is or the purity. Regardless, this is a really nice antique find and a wonderful example of micro mosaic art.Measures approximately 1 1/8" in diameter. The back of the piece is missing it's pin portion. Because the real value and beauty is in the front of the piece, this minor imperfection does not take away from it. The front of the brooch is in very good condition.
Happy offerding! :)
