An amazing Victorian Micro mosaic brooch
I just had to show you. It is in the shape of a cross. This is set with 5 pictures – grapes an anchor, two flower panels and a central bird. The reverse has a hook which I believe was originally used to wear this as a pendant with the brooch clip being added in the later 1800s. Note that the triangular section on the right hand side is missing its tiles otherwise this is in excellent condition. It measures
about 4 cms
Currently this antique brooch is for sale by AntiquesAvenue on eBay with a very reasonable start price.
