A scarce antique period sterling silver filigree posey holder or tussie mussie c1900. Late Victorian or early Edwardian period posey holders, popularly known as tussie mussies in the UK, were used to hold floral bridal bouquets.
This ornate but delicate looking 3" long example has a loop for the (now missing) chain which would have terminated in a heavy straight pin which went through the bottom section of the posey to keep it in place.

It is in very good condition with no dents, bends, corrosion, losses, damage or repairs other than the loss of the (replaceable) chain with flat pin/peg. A unique and beautiful wedding accessory.
