Today we are delighted to offer for sale a lovely vintage Steiff 925 sterling silver “tussie mussie” pin brooch! This sweet brooch, expertly crafted in the shape of a double-handled urn, features open internal space so that the person wearing it can place a flower in it. Brooches like this were used in the 19th century and before to mask unpleasant odors when ladies would leave their houses. Pin in very good condition, with very minimal wear/tarnish and patina commensurate with age. An elegant piece that will make a wonderful addition to any fine jewelry collection out there. Fresh to the market!
