We are doing a lot of shifting between London and Suffolk this summer and last weekend I happened across this fabulous, Venitian millefiori demonstration set at the British Museum. I particularly appreciate the tiny eye sample on the lower left side.
The museum was crushingly full and suffocatingly hot so I'm going to have to go back for a better photo - but here are miniature portraits - in construction steps of: Garibaldi, Victor Emannuel II and Cavour, heroes of the Italian 'Risorgimento'. 1860s by G B Franchini.
