Italian micro mosaic brooch

A pretty little Italian micro mosaic brooch, dating to the mid 20th century. Micro mosaic is when tiny glass tiles are crafted together and placed into cement to produce ‘micro mosaic’ pictures, which are then set into jewellery. Micro mosaic work dates back over 2000 years, although it was probably most popular in the 18th & 19th Centuries during the time of the Grand Tour. Italy is the most famous producer of micro mosaic jewellery. This brooch is in good order and was probably a holiday souvenir brought home in the 1950s, brass backed.


aurora borealis brooch, 1970s

An attractive 1970s 'Aurora Borealis' brooch. The process of making Aurora Borealis coating on crystal was in experimental phases in the early 1950's by the Swarovski Company. The process progressed to some success in 1953, but not until 1955 did Manfred Swarovski perfect it. This is a really attractive example of cut crystal with the rainbow coating.(its not Swarovski). The brooch features a central circle surrounded by 6 flowers creating one larger flower, really pretty when the light catches it.
