a mouse's dazzling morsel

The Walters Art Museum,  Gift of Mrs. Leslie Legum, 1991
There's a diamond in that golden spoon, and that mouse (he's silver) has his beady eye upon it.  If you were a well-dressed, well-off gent in 1870s England, you might have selected this to be the perfect stick pin for your tie.
