Sterling Holloware: Posy Holders

Antique Silver Posy Holders

You may know the antique silver posy holder was created for women as a place to hold their tussie-mussies without ruining their dresses. These beautiful portable flower and herb vases were meant to ward off unpleasant smells that filled the air. They became romanticized in the Victorian era and were a popular accessory for young women that was given to them by their gentleman callers. There are many styles that the posy holder came in. Nelson & Nelson is an incredible antique shop in New York City. Browse our selection of antique silver posy holders or any of the other antique sterling silver pieces.
