197153 - Eliezer Edwards - 08 May 1866 -  buttonhole/nosegay holder

Notes
This design is for a posy or buttonhole pin. The phial [a vessel for holding liquids] is used to hold water to keep the flower or posy fresh. The long needle is used to hold the phial securely to the costume of the wearer. The phial, in this instance, would be made of ceramic material.
