Description:

This very well crafted and colorful bird would look great on any wall.

There is a long and unique tradition to "Florentine mosaic", as it is called, which consists of semi-precious stones inlaid in stone. Skilled craftsmen were especially in demand for the princes' chapel of San Lorenzo in 1588. They started in shops in the Palazzo degli Uffizi and then after 1796 moved to the Convent of San Niccolò where, chiefly for restoration purposes, this special Florentine craft is still carried on today.

The mosaic is marked on the back:

GINA CONTINI

MOSAICI FIORENTINI

BIGIOTTERIE ARTISTICHE

PIAZZA S. CROCE 15 R TELE. 26092

FIRENZE

The dimensions are:

Image 3.5" W x 2.5" T. Frame 4.5" W x 3.5" T.

It is in Very Good Condition with no chips or cracks.I will be happy to combine items to save on shipping.Thank for Looking and Good Luck!
