This is a beautiful little box with a Venetian "mile fiori’’ micro mosaic top. This was formed by arranging sections of different colors of glass cane side by side, and binding them together by heat. The outside surface is heavily repoussed with a floral pattern. The metal appears to be brass. This belonged to my grandmother and is really a precious little antique. It measures 1” wide X 1-3/8” long and is 5/8” deep. The hinge works fine and the pin has been replaced.
