Antique 14K Victorian Mosaic Pin - C1870

Beautiful antique Victorian Italian pietra dura mosaic pin. The setting is gorgeous 
14K granular work. Unmarked, but acid tested by a jeweler. The back ground is 
slate with a beautiful lily of the valley design. What I had always assumed to be 
a crack in the top, appears to be part of the design. The pin stem and C clasp are 
not gold. Dates to the 1870s. 

1 & 3/8" by 1 & 3/16"

7.1 grams. 

----There is one small green leaf tile missing.
----Slight lilt in pin shape.
