Exceptional Antique Italian Pietra Dura Micromosaic Miniature Picture Frame
Exceptional antique Italian pietra dura micromosaic 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. Usually the subject matter was portraiture. This beauty is wonderfully executed with tiny tiny flowers. The frame measures 2 7/8" tall by 2 1/2" wide. The inside dimensions are 2 3/8" x 1 1/2". It has tiny feet that with the back piece, form a stand. Excellent condition and has the original glass and board in tact.
