c.1900 Micro Mosaic Brooch with Shirt Studs
$165.00 set

Measurements: BROOCH: 2 1/4" long x 1/8" wide - SHIRT STUDS: four @ 3/8" diameter each.

This group is truly VERY MICRO mosaic-almost requiring magnification to see the beautifully fashioned flowers.

I consider this a woman's dress set as the brooch would be at the neck of a high collar while the studs held the shirt front as buttons.

No damages or repairs. Photographed with the brass metal unpolished.

Most likely Edwardian vintage, though possibly older.

Usually Italian origin.

The finer, more delicate the micro mosaic, the older and originally more expensive the jewelry.
