Lapel Vases are the perfect accessory. The concept goes back to the Victorian Era, when they were known as “Tussie Mussies”.

Ours are made from the hollow handles of antique silver-plated knives. With a pin clasp on the back, they form the perfect little “vase” to wear on your lapel. Just insert a small wedge of wet sponge (included) with the flower stem and it will keep a flower fresh for hours; a rose will stay fresh all day!...a great way to feminize a business suit or add a fresh and lovely touch to any dress.

Although we created them with women in mind, they are also perfect for the gents! They can add an elegant and classy touch to any special evening. Lapel Vases will hold those boutonnieres for every man in your wedding party.

This “vase” is made from silverware of the “SAYBROOK“ pattern which was made in 1919. It is approx. 2 1/2” tall.
