This beautiful, antique Victorian brooch made in the 1900s in Italy has gorgeous, vividly colored, micro-mosaic tiles over its entire surface. The red, blue, green and white tiles are set into gold-tone metal, creating a stunning look, especially for such a long, bar-shaped brooch. The craftsmanship is superb.
Overall, this brooch is in very good antique condition, free of any missing tiles. The gold-tone metal is slightly discolored with age, which is only to be expected. The pin mechanism in back is also in great condition. The words “Made in Italy” amid a floral design appear on the pin’s backside
This Italian antique brooch would do well with any outfit, casual or formal. It would also make for a thoughtful gift for a family member, friend or colleague. If you are a collector of vintage Victorian-era jewelry, then this brooch is right for you!
