Circa 1870, 18k, French. Featuring St. Peter's Square, this particularly exceptional micro mosaic pin features a heavy, finely detailed 18kt gold frame. An earlier example, the scene of St. Peter's Square in the Vatican is realistically depicted using extra small tesserae for superb detail. The gold work is French and art Italian. An important part of the archeological revival movement, micro mosaic jewelry sits at a crossroads. Brilliantly combining fashion, fine art, and the decorative arts, the result is a lasting legacy of unique pieces. Excellent condition.

Remarks from Lawrence Jeffrey: "Often made by Nuns in Vatican City, pins like this one venerated the faith, were wonderful souvenirs, and a hip fashion statement. Try and find a piece of jewelry that does all that today!"
