Antique Italian micro-mosaic miniature picture frame that is oval with a lovely floral theme. These are tiny glass pieces assembled into flowers and set into oval brass. These were very popular in the Victorian era and were used to show off hand painted porcelain and other cameo materials. The frame is wonderfully executed with tiny flowers. It has tiny feet which also have the micro-mosaic decoration and, together with the back piece, form a stand.
6.5cm (2½in)) tall
5cm (2in) wide.
Excellent condition with the original glass intact.
