Circa 1880, 18k, attributed to Italy. A charming, wearable example of nineteenth-century archeological revival jewelry, this fabulous pin features an exuberant pietra dura scene of flowers and a heavily worked hand-made frame. From the excellent gold-work to the particularly fine intarsia inlay, the look is vintage chic at its antique best. Excellent condition.

Noted: In one of the model shots a second brooch is shown. It is inventory number 21306

Pietra Dura is stone inlaid in stone to form a picture; it is a type of mosaic.

Remarks from Lawrence Jeffrey: "Drawing inspiration from the friezes in the Pompeian house of Vetii, the black backgrounds of these popular grand tour souvenir jewels have an elegance that dates back 2000 years."

Price: $0.00
