1920's lapel flower holder

Two of these 1920s "Johnny in the Pulpit" lapel flower holders came up at a local auction, but I was only able to get my hands on one. There aren't many on Etsy right now - or ever? Even though I really, really want to keep it, I will be putting in the shop [on Monday, August 13th] so it can find a new lapel or dress collar to rest on.
