Antique Victorian Micro Mosaic Pietra Dura Sunflower Floral Plaque:
This is an sale for an antique Victorian era floral micro mosaic or pietra dura plaque. The finely detailed design features a vibrant blooming yellow sunflower with red and blue in the center and a sweeping green stem with leaves on dark blue glass. A small piece of the blue glass has been chipped off the face edge. There are no pieces missing from the mosaic.There is a shallow fracture in the glass on the back, as well as three nicks to the back. It measures 15/16" x 3/4". In spite of the damage, this striking piece displays beautifully and is worthy of a small repair.I am currently listing several other unmounted micro mosaics, all from the same estate. It's possible they were souvenirs from the "Italian Grand Tour" which toured ancient Roman monuments.
All measurements are approximate.Whenever possible, I will combine winning sales so that you may save on shipping. Thank for taking a look!
