    A quarter sized pendant and small picture frame. I figured I’d post these here in this forum, mods feel free to move it.
    They both have the same type of glass flower structures familiar in paperweights, the pendant looks the same on both sides. The ‘mosaic’ frame is pretty dirty, I hit it lightly with some warm water and dish soap which only helped a little.
    Any thoughts or info would be appreciated, Thank You!

    nice pieces Shwikman:) I think your frame would be Micro Mosaic from Italy, older than your pendant.

    Thank You!
    The pendant is marked along the rim, 925 inside of an oval, if that means anything.

    The first piece is a slice of canes like used in paperweights. I've never seen one done into a pendant. The surround is sterling silver. A lovely piece!

    Then that sounds like the Etsy one, I can’t speculate on the dating they give. :)

    I agree... the first piece is millefiori glas and the second looks like micromosaic.

    The millefiori pieces are still being made today. Yours is not as tightly cut and placed as the one in INH's link. So I think yours is on the newer side.

    The micromosaic is older - early 1900s. Pre WWII
    Is this a mark

    I believe Perthshire glass made a lot of siver jewellery similar yo yours, rings pendants etc: Usually set in silver.

    The pendant is indeed millefiori. You can buy these in Venice, and they were also made by some Scottish companies, most notably Caithness. I think yours is Italian from the colours. If it says 925, it's silver with a gold wash. Buy a Sunshine Cloth and give it a gentle clean.

    Very nice micro mosaic frame, agree on the dating.
