I don't know if the correct name for it is tussie mussie or posy holder...

Anyway, it is intended to hold a rose bud, as the leaves are of roses!

For now, I post it with the first flowers in my garden: primroses!

5.5cm (2.1/8") long, indistinct marks on the C clasp and on a stem at back.

Back is gilded.

    A beautiful Victorian boutonniere/posy holder! Normally, these have a closed part for the flower so water can be added.

    Bonnie, boutonnière it must be! Thank you! Sure, without water, it must hold a resistant flower :-)
    Thanks a lot for your loves, Beyemvey, Bonnie, Mrstyndall and Hel!

    Very nice, I've seen similar, with a glass tube for orchids, but this one was never meant to have one. It's a real beauty! :^)
