Vintage smalti

These are really interesting smalti which have arrived at Mosaic Workshop via various routes.  Some have been leftovers from major projects, others have come from artists' studios.  Their provenance means that they are not the uniform colours and sizes of modern smalti, but offer a mix of shades, some varied dimensions and a great deal of character.  Please read the descriptions and look carefully at the photographs to see exactly what you will be getting.
