Very Good - Some wear to the brass reverse. This is only visible upon very close inspection and does not detract from the overall appeal of the piece.

The Details...

This brass bracelet is set with micro-mosaics arranged in a floral pattern. The bracelet fastens with a hook and eye. It measures 16.5cm in length. 

A Short History...

Micro mosaic jewellery has been a strong feature of Italy's design heritage from as early as the third century. However, it particularly rose to prominence with the dawn of the tourist trade in the 19th century. Brooches and pendants featuring pretty and detailed designs made up of tiny tiles of coloured glass or stone were produced in abundance for visitors to Italian towns and villages. In the mid-20th century, the manufacture of micro-mosaic jewellery in Italy increased further in order to meet the increasing demand for costume jewellery. This bracelet dates from the 1950s and is the epitome of Italian riviera chic so popular at the time.
