A fine mid-19th century serpentine grand tour micro mosaic tablet or paperweight of the iconic St Peter's Vatican, The Colosseum of Rome, The Pantheon, The Ruins of The Roman Forum and The Temple of Vesta set into black marble.

During a gentleman's Grand Tour, it was customary to bring back fine mementoes for either one's own collection or as a gift demonstrating the breadths of one's travels. This beautiful micro mosaic would undoubtedly have achieved its purpose and continues to provide enjoyment today.


H: 11cm. W: 15,7cm. D: 1,8cm.


Very small pits in the black marmble, bottom left; easy to restore.
