A fabulous tussie mussie in original ormolu with a Mother of Pearl handle.
It is 4 inches long and 1 1/4 inches wide at the opening.
The beautiful posy holder has the original chain and spring loaded pin for securing the posy.
The design is an openwork metal creation with stylised flowers such as bluebells and forget me nots trellised together and mounted on a base decorated with scrolled acanthus decorations above the iridescent Mother of Pearl handle. The handle is faceted which makes it easier to hold.
There is one specific circular opening into which the pin fits and clips into place.
It is in pristine condition. The holder is securely attached to the handle. The chain and pin are original. The handle is free from chips or cracks.
This is an investment quality antique that can become a family heirloom used on very special occasions.
