Mosaic flowered pin
Shelby White and Leon Levy Archives Center, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, NJ, USA
Ceramic micro-mosaic flowered pin set in gold toned, possibly brass, base. Oval shaped with medallions inset with designs suggestive of flowers in pink, red, and blue, as well as foliage in white and green. Five larger medallions across the piece and one each radiating from the central rose create a dominant cross-shaped pattern. Smaller medallions and triangular areas with additional decorative mosaic in each create a symmetrial pattern to the overall piece.
