Very Fine Example 19c Italian Grand Tour Micro Mosaic Panel Of The Forum In Rome
I have absolutely no idea what this exquisite little piece of micro mosaic was intended as. An embellishment to a piece of furniture perhaps? What I can say is that the mosaic itself is of the finest quality, the many many tiny coloured glass tesserae are so small and so densely packed together and the colour choices and graduations are so subtle and the detail so rich, it quite boggles the brain. Do compare with other examples on this site and you'll see what I mean. This is highly sophisticated work compared to most.

The image itself has a diameter of 43 mm. The black glass mount is 56 mm in diameter. This in turn is mounted in a circular frame of pressed and gilded non-ferrous metal, probably brass. There are the remains of a red ribbon stuck inside the reverse, so perhaps it was designed to be hung against something.

There is a single small hole punched into the edge at about 10 o'clock. Anyway, I will pass the mystery to the new owner. And make the most of the enlargement facility!

The purge of the collection continues..... A varied batch this week. Regular clients will know that I keep my descriptions brief and to the point. If you are looking, I figure you will know what you are looking at.

I would not presume to condescend nor would I wish to bore you to death with unnecessary hype, history or punctuation. Used records play-checked on SME 15, SME V with VDH stereo or Lyra mono carts and cleaned when necessary on a Loricraft Pro II.

MINT (M): Brand new and unplayed. Perfect, no indications of being handled or played. I only use this grading if I know for sure the record has not been played. NEAR MINT (NM): The record is virtually flawless, clean and shiny.

Very minor, barely visible innerbag wear may be permitted, but no scratches. The disc should play with no audible noise. Jacket is as close to perfect. EXCELLENT (EX): Record plays near perfectly, but may have minor paper scuffs that do not interfere with the sound quality. There can possibly be a non-sounding mark or two but nothing that affects play.

Record is clean and shiny. Any issues with the jacket will be minor and described. Because I have never collected records that are a lower grade than EX, you won't be finding any for sale here.

I ensure that my records arrive with you in the same lovely condition they leave me, carefully packed in secure professional wraps with sheet polystyrene and cardboard packing. I do not use bits of old cardboard box or those cheap flimsy envelope style mailers. Records are always packed out of their jackets.
