VICTORIAN FLORAL PIETRA DURA BROOCH

$ 1,400

The jewel du jour for the cultured traveller in Victorian England was undoubtedly a mosaic from Italy.  This example, a generous round, bears a central panel of white lilies and forget me not with hints of turquoise and olive foliage inlaid in the characteristic black background in stark contrast to the 18ct rich gold Etruscan revival frame exquisitely created using applied twist wires.
