This micro mosaic piece is most likely from the 1960s, Italy. It is not marked. However, these pieces were treasured souvenirs brought back from Italy in the days of olde.
What is unique about this micro mosaic is the horseshoe encasement. It is framed in gold tone rope, as are the motifs within. Reminds me of the grand floral horseshoe bouquets the winners receive at the Kentucky Derby and other horse races. This would be THE PERFECT GIFT for the EQUESTRIAN IN YOUR LIFE! However, you don't need to be an equestrian to wear this, my motto is if you like it wear it...it will make you smile!
Tidbit from the Cove: Micromosaics are pictures made out of extremely small pieces (tiles) of stone, glass or other materials. Italian micro mosaics were treasured souvenirs. The older the piece, the more intricate. The smaller the glass shards the more workmanship that went into a piece. These smaller tiles are collected for their fine workmanship. Millefiori ~ "thousand flowers" in Italian ~ is formed from multiple canes of colored glass that are fused together and cut crosswise.
The Art nouveau influence is seen in the passion for nature in this piece.
