    Going through some old sterling, this is completely unmarked but tests for silver. What would this have been part of? Bottom section is approx 4" long.

    Appears the base was broken off (where it would have been marked)...

    If mine, would be hanging on the Christmas tree, filled with candy, flowers, or fake fruit, maybe some ribbon...

    Tussy Mussy, there are a few different spellings of this, not sure if yours is considered that but figured I would throw it out there.

    Cute idea. :)

    Had to search "Tussy Mussy". Good keyword.
