1850s Micro Mosaic King Charles Spaniel, Unmounted, Unused, Italy Grand Tour Souvenir, 40mm x 32mm. All items and photos are the express property of Antiques & Uncommon Treasure. No reproduction without prior written consent. We’ll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our’Favorites’ customers. Years ago, I bought out a lot of unmounted cameos, lava cameos, micro mosaics and gems from the estate of an old goldsmith (family business for a couple centuries) in Paris. This one, never mounted, was among those. I’m working through that collection now. Years ago we did a lot more with micro mosaics than we do now. The most valuable spaniels are the ones with intricate mosaic work in curly tesserae. I’ll add an old one we had to show the difference if I can find the images. While this one has slightly curly colored glass tesserae, and is pristine, it is a collector’s piece, or for someone who wishes to have a goldsmith make a suitable gold mount for it. I’ve seen these worked up into a stunning necklace with a variety of Grand Tour c. Measurements noted on the photos: 40mm x 32mm and 4mm thick. No chips, no losses to tesserae, pristine at 170 years old or more. We’re easy to deal with. You are very important! Our fine inventory is very important.
