The proper technical term for the so called
Floroatinn mosaics is works in "comroeaso."
Tbey are coinpoand of delicate slice of atones,
larerully cut into shape, arranged and Joined
together ("commemi") with a fine cement,
iml then titled into a thiu slab of marbla.
The pictures are produced by the natural
:ints of the stones, the seloction of which, to
;airy out any given design, demands great
atste aud skill.
DETAILS OP THE WORK.
After the design had been prepared the thin
ili'-eg of stone selected for the varioiH parts
tre distributed among a oertain number of
workmen, each of whom completes tbe por
tion of the design intrusted to bim, the whole
tubject lieing substantially united. Tbe
tones, after being cut into tlie required
ih!ies, are carefully set together with a ce
ment made of was and mastic ("pace trees"),
heat being used to bind them together. Slate
la employed to suport tbe work during its
progress, and to line it when complete. At
iu h stage the first lining affixed tothesepar
ate parts is ground down, and a fresh one ap
plied, so that a a even surface may always be
lecured. When, Anally, the complete design
a tltted into the marble slab prepared for its
-eeoption, the whole of the base is again
round down to a perfect plane, and Is lined
with a fresh hacking of slate. The fitting U
jerformed with the grnatntt care, the edges
f the several parte being filed until the exact
iimensions have been attained. Tbe whole
mrfaca is afterward polished, so that tbe
:luesof Juncture are rendered almost invis
ible. To bind on the lining beat is used, as
also for uniting the smaller pieces. Tbe opera
tion is very carefully performed, ao that no
more cement than is absolutely required
ihould remain be twees he pans that have
been Joined together.
The first operation of sawing the stones
into tbin slices, from to 8 millimeters In
thickness, is performed by means of thin
blades of iron or copper, emery powder giv
ing tbe required friction. The slices are fur
ther sawn into tbe shapes required to form
tbe various parts of tbe dsign by Iron or
copper wire attached to bows, and alwavs
with the aid of emery. The finest emery
powder ("poltiglia") is used for polishinir the
surface of the nones, and emery is employed
ror griuding down tbe linings. For this pur
pose the work is placed on a fixed slab of
marble or slate. Iron plates of varioos sizes
and thickness, according to the dimensions of
the slab, and having wooden bundles, being
ttnaJily worked over it by one or two men,
To provide stones for the works in real
"pietre dure," Europe, Asia and tbe north of
Africa have been laid under contribution,
and the Royal factory possesses a large col
lection of stones, valued at some 20,000 lire.
Among tbe principal stones employed are
amethysts, agates, tbe sardonyx and chalce
dony, flints, many varieties of Jasper, peb
bles from the Arno (which generally contain
a large proportion ot lime), and petrified
wood Among the rocks, which are chiefly
uwd f.r works of decoration, are red ori

Corsica, labradorite, ollguclase (lately intro
duced), antique porphyry, green porphyry,
oriental eertwntine, jade Uualt, aiUciou.
breccia and lapis lazuli. Black marble from
Belgium is largely used as a foundation, and
slate, as has already been mentioned, is em
ployed as a lining for works in "commesso."
Tbe hardness of the materials employed, re
quiring patience to work them, accounts for
the costliness of works In "pietre dure,! of
which 75 to SO per cent, is attributed to
The outfit of a oioaaiciat is very simple.
With a small table, a basin of water, a bra
sier, a vice, some copper and iron blades to
be used aa files, a bow strung with iron wire,
a little emery powder and a few stoues al
ready cut into slices, which cost only a few
francs, his equipment is complete. It la uot
astonishing, therefore, that, on the industry
being popularised, it should have been at
tractive, and, at one time, tbe number of
person, engaged in it was calculated at 1,000.
The youths who intend to become mosaic isls
are generally members of peasant or artisan
families residing near Florence, and they are
eutlrely without previous culture. As many
of them never learn to draw, the designs for
tbe works are made by special draughtsmen.
First raw hands, but their number is linilt
ed, may earn from five lire to six lire, and
for figure subjects up to ten lire per diem.
For the more delicate work the hours of la
bor do not exceed eight daily In winter aad
ten la summer. The rates of wages are gen
erally calculated by piece work. The earn
ing of the artisans who wurk in their own
homes are very uncertain and do not average
three lire or franca per diem.
Although artiste in mosaic bad bean em
ployed by Duke Cosmo de Medici In previous
years, tbe foundation of the royal factory of
'pietre dure" In Florence may, perhaps, be
considered to date from about the year 15T4,
when soma rooms in tbo Casino di San Marco
were assigned for the resilience of the masters
of the art. Tbe permanent establishment
dates, however, from September, 15SH, when
the artists, by order of the Grand Duke Fer
dinand I, were transferred to the CfBzL Here
the factory remained until 1TV6, in which
year It was removed to tbe suppressed con
vent of 8 Niccolo, in the present Via RicaaoU,
where it still exists, thongh transferred to a
different part of the building, with entrance
on tbe Via degli AlfanL For about two cen
turies and a naif tbe production of the Floren
tine mosaics had remained a monopoly of the
royal factory; It was not till 1SS25 that Signor
Gaetano Bianchini commenced the industrial
