Victorian Micro Mosaic Pietra Dura Strawberry Pin

Beautiful red strawberry with green leaves, made entirely of glass micro mosaic set into black glass, or black jet, and set in an oval gilded brass bezel. The bezel is quite fancy, being surrounded by an attached ribbon with flowers and berries. The micro mosaic is of excellent quality, and would qualify as being called pietra dura. The pin has a C-clasp and a tubular hinge. Unfortunately the black glass is damaged, with three cracks and a couple of tiny chips. Measures approx. 1 3/16 x 1 inch and 3/8 inch thick. Excellent condition.
