Italian Glass Mosaic Pin BIG Oval Floral Brooch 1950s Jewelry $95

Italian Glass Mosaic Pin BIG Oval Floral Brooch 1950s Jewelry


Made in Italy in the 1940-1950 era, this large glass mosaic brooch is an exquisite hand made floral design.

Italians have been making spectacular glass mosaic jewelry for centuries but it wasn’t until the 1940-1950 era that large designs came about. Over the past 30+ years, large Italian glass mosaic brooches have always been a favorite of mine to collect and wear because the larger brooches are just out right impressive and eye catching. Large designs are also more difficult to find.

In addition, I also admire the color composition of this brooch because the colorful flowers jump out on the black glass mosaic background, and black backgrounds are also of the most difficult to find.

The brooch has a gold metal rope frame and also note the very special red, white and blue caned glass border. These three colors are not a mosaic inlay but rather caned glass tube beads.

Large in size, the brooch is 2" wide x 1 1/4" tall or 50 mm x 33 mm.

The entire brooch is in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws. All of the glass pieces retain their original high gloss finish and there are no missing, chipped, or cracked pieces. The back of the brooch is gold plated and is signed Italy. The original fine working C clasp is in place.

Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new luxury presentation brooch box.
