Another Pansy Poesy

Victoria and Albert Museum T.144.1934
In searching for something else for my blog discussions (I routinely troll sites looking for private collection pieces that likely ended up in public ones 80 years later), I found a 'dress ornament' made from lacets in the V&A collection.  The poesy of pansies is obviously made from lacets, I just wish we could see the colors it is made in.

I bet if we combed through many other collections, we would find many more of these casket toys (a general term for personal items that have been found associated with the embroidered boxes).
