An Italian Micro Mosaic And Gold Suite

Description

An Italian archaeological revival micro mosaic and gold suite, consisted of a brooch and a pair of earrings, each of the domed-shaped earrings, bearing a circular micro mosaic panel depicting a multi-coloured insect on white background, surrounded by gold beading decoration, to the centre of four circular and four kite-shaped mosaic panels, to a yellow gold mount with hook fitting, accompanied by similar designed micro-mosaic decorated brooch, all in a gold mount with brooch fitting, circa 1840, bearing the Papal State hallmark, the brooch measuring 3.1cm in diameter, the earrings measuring 2.1cm in diameter, gross weight 24.67 grams, in an original fitted case.

A beautifully crafted micro mosaic set. Micro mosaic is a technique of Ancient Roman art that had a resurgence in popularity in the nineteenth century in Italy. Tourists from England and other parts of Europe would visit Rome as part of their ‘grand tour’ of the ancient world, and many bought micro mosaic jewellery as souvenirs. This set features a pair of earrings and a matching brooch, each with a finely mosaiced insect set in a round gold frame decorated with further mosaic patterns. Exquisitely crafted, this wonderful mosaic set displays Ancient Roman as well as Byzantine influences.
