Victorian Posie Holders
The pin in the photo above would be used to hold the flower stems in place. Stems would be wrapped in moist moss so they would stay fresh for the day. The ring would be worn on your finger which would allow you to drop the holder and keep your hands free to shop the market or to dance.This Tussie Mussie, or nosegay, holder is Nancy's inheritance. She found that lovely embroidered hankie to go with it. More photos of our tussie mussie holders tomorrow and for more samples on Tussie Mussie holders and more history on Tussie Mussies and the Victorian Era refer to this blog post from last year.
