A sweet brooch by Beau Sterling reviving the popular Posey Holders - this one, I believe, was made to hold a single floral stem - probably a rose.
Posey holders were very popular in the Victorian period and seem to have a resurgence in popularity every 25 years or so. They came in all sizes and shapes some even meant to carry a bouquet. You can read more about them at the below URL. Enjoy !
Most of our items are vintage unless we tell you otherwise. Therefore expect them to be in "Vintage" condition. This means normal wear and some softening of stone sparkle is to be expected. If either is in excess we will note it in our description. We do not thoroughly clean our items, leaving that to the preferences of the buyer, and if there are any serious problems, flaws or noticeable repairs, we will always try to note it in the description. Realizing that nothing can replace a "hands-on" inspection of an item, if you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason, we will always accept returns or otherwise try to make you a satisfied customer. Our return policy can be found at the top of each item page.
If you ask us to hold an item for you and then change your mind about purchasing, please let me know so that we can remove the hold and release for sale. Thank you for shopping with us !
