Item specifics

Seller notes: In fabulous condition, the purse appears unused and very carefully stored without rust to beading or fading to the rich reddy brown of the crochet body. A rare treat with a wonderful motto stitched around one of the closing rings.
Type: Purse Metal: Steel
A classic miser's purse in simply wonderful condition

Dating most likely from the 1880's, the classically formed purse is rounded at one end with a heavy facet cut steel bead at it's end

and the square end has two hollow beads with a cut gallery running around their middle

Beautifully crochet with a tight running stitch, the purse is decorated with a petal motif at the rounded end and a band of stylised flowers at the other end

Most notable however is the crown worked in beads at the middle section which sits above an unidentified letter sequence or motif - sorry I really cant make it out

and the lovely silk covered closing rings

The lower ring has the letters LORD HAVE MERCY picked out in beads

and the upper ring appears to depict a dove or bird

The whole purse is in the most excellent condition and the steel beads are in bright and clean condition

No snags to the threads and clean

Clearly never used and an attractive, interesting example for the collector

Fabric measures 8" in length (20.3cm)
including beads 9.25" (23.5cm)
