A beautifully made antique c1860 micromosaic pendant with tiny bits of inlaid glass composing the image of a dove on a blue background. It's mounted in 18K with intricate wirework borders. Recently restored with a new 18K backing and bale. Hangs on a more recent vintage 18K yellow gold chain with sturdy cable links. Micromosaic panels were common souvenirs of Italy in the 18th and 19th century, and this one is uncommonly high quality.
