Antique Italian micro mosaic dual color picture frame, unsigned, c. 1900, unusual dual color as though it is 2 different frames on top and bottom; measures about 5-1/8"h X 3-7/8"w; opening is about 2-7/8" X 2-1/8" (dollar bill shown in image for size comparison only).  Antique, pre-owned, imperfect, used condition; wear and discolored areas to the gold colored metal portions; no obvious missing tesserae as best I can tell, but some are uneven with the others so maybe some repair (please see photos).  Two latches on the back have been lost, the kickstand is bent a bit, and there is no backing behind the image.
