    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.

    Interesting!

      A beautiful Victorian boutonniere/posy holder! Normally, these have a closed part for the flower so water can be added.
    5. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      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! :^)

      Many thanks too for your saying about Charlie cat... watching his photos and videos soften the grief. It was very hard to have him passing in my arms and these images bring me back to happy memories!
