Antique Large Italian Grand Tour Micromosaic Micro Mosaic Canal W/ Bridge Plaque:
This exceptionally large Italian Grand Tour Era (or perhaps earlier)Micromosaic- 9.75” x 7.75” without frame is indeed a rare find. Besides the amazing size, the micro mosaic is beautifully vibrant in color, detailed in design, and elegant in theme. The piece shows a Venetian bridge scene complete with gondola and buildings. The cement-filled metal panback gives the piece a hefty weight, while the ornate carved wooden frame (believed to be original or at the very least quite old) lends a further sense of classical beauty. The piece is at least 100 years old, and assuch there have been a few areas of repair over time where missing bits of tile have been artfully replaced with matched grout, but all seem to have been done long ago by someone who knew what they were doing. Please examine photos carefully before offerding. The largest area of repair is to the right of the apex of the bridge. Truly a find for the serious collector of micromosaics and since this is a sale, it will be going to a new home very soon. Will it be yours?
