A very rare Victorian Silver Posie holder brooch. These are commonly known as Tussie Mussies

You place a small sprig of flowers in the top and then attach it to your lapel. This is 2 inches high. There are full solid silver hallmarks for Birmingham 1890 and the makers initials W. T.

The decoration is very romantic with horseshoe and flowers . There is aso a riding crop so this could have been originally made for the marriage of a person keen on horses. It is quite wearable even after all these years.
