Tussy Mussy, Posey Holder in great condition, with the the pin and finger-ring still attached. The Victorian flower holder has a Mother of Pearl handle and all is in excellent condition. The gold metal has great color. From the Victorian Era to carry your small bouquet of flowers to protect a lady from the foul smells of the streets. It is 5 1/2 inches long. These seem to be incredibly hard to find and a true treasure when you do. Every tussy mussy is a treasure and most unique in their own way.
As far as I know, there was only one book written about Tussie Mussie's and I'm proud to know the authors daughter…and I have the book of course!
