A late 19th century Italian micro mosaic miniature photo frame. It is in the shape of a horseshoe and is adorned with flowers with white border. The tesserae are minitaure glass tiles and they are set in a gilt brass mount. The photo area is oval. It has a twisted wire stand which is usual for these pieces. The photo area is approx 2.5cm x 1.9cm. It has the original glass panel, no backing card present.
Normal period wear to the metal. Twisted wire stand is somewhat wayward and appears to have been refixed or glued at some point and there is some rubbing above the join - it does still work though.
