Posy Pin

Regular price $0.00 $65.00 Sale

Vintage grooms, dandy fashionistos, floral designers, and brooch lovers, we picked this romantic old posy pin for you! This sweet vintage vase-on-a-pin holds enough water for a single stem or small tussie mussie. A rare piece made by Little Nemo. 

Vintage metal with brass finish, on pin with safety clasp. Marked LN/25 (Little Nemo, 1913-78). Entire piece approximately 2.5" tall, 2" wide; vase just over 1.5" deep and .5" across top. Safety clasp was added or replaced at some time. 

Flowers worn on the lapel are pretty but in stinkier pre-deodorant Victorian times, they had a practical purpose too - helping counterbalance body odors.
