Due placche in micromosaico, contenute nel loro astuccio originale in cuoio, con rifiniture in oro. Oggetti tipici del periodo del "Grand Tour".

I micromosaici sono di forma circolare, con base in pietra nera, sulla quale sono incastonate minuscole tessere in vetro colorato a formare un mosaico di altissima qualità e dettagli accurati.

I soggetti raffigurano: una veduta della basilica di San Pietro in Vaticano e quattro colombe che si abbeverano. Quest'ultimo soggetto è ispirato ad un mosaico, ritrovato nel 1737 presso Villa Adriana (Tivoli), che ebbe grande successo durante tutto l'800. Ne esiste un'altra versione citata da Plinio il Vecchio (23 ca- 79 d.C ) come opera di Sosos, artista di Pergamo del II secolo a.C. ( Naturalis Historia, Lib. XXXVI,184):

Epoca: XIX secolo

Stato di conservazione: eccellente, nessuna tessera mancante. Si segnalano dietro alcuni residui di colla, forse relativi ad una precedente incastonatura.

Diametro dei micromosaici: cm. 2
Dimensioni scatola: cm. 5x8 h. 2,5
