This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver posy holder has a conical shaped form.

The surface of the holder is embellished with alternating bands of impressive interlacing pierced rope twist decoration and subtly incurved panels of bright cut engraved scrolling leaf ornamentation.

The vessel terminates with a bright cut engraved decorated knop accented with applied ball motifs.

This Victorian posy holder is fitted with an impressive interlacing rope twist decorated handpiece, matching the pierced ornamentation to the body.

This impressive example of antique silverware is fitted with a silver fancy link chain, terminating with a split pin.
