Tussie Mussie Brooch for holding a flower sprig or feather

A Tussie Mussie brooches are quite rare to source nowdays. The brooches have a little "tube" area that can hold a small posy of flowers or a small feather. Popular originally during the Victorian period, where both men and women used them to stop the flower ends staining their clothing, hold a small posy and add decoration all at the same time.
Jewels and Finery has one available at the moment. Its quite small and will just about fit a small sprig of heather or a flower similar. Very collectible with this one dating to the early part of the twentieth century.
