Primary Description: 
2 Mosaic Glass Inlays from Mosaic Glass Shrine. Mosaic glass or millefiori elements. Two mosaic glass inlays, roughly rectangular in cross section with rounded ends, the motif being a plume-like finial perhaps from an architectural design, the plume in opaque yellow has an alternating brown, white and blue stem with a small diagonal yellow band all in a blue matrix. The bands at the bottom would form a zig-zag motif when used in a repetitive form.
