antique misers purse 1840 1 antique misers purse 1840

Mid 19th Century beaded miser's purse. Very good condition. Two silver rings. Fringed on one end. One seam needs a little repair.
The miser's purse was in style in the mid to late 1800's. Carried by both men and women to contain money, they were flipped over a belt, held in the hand, or kept in a pocket. The metal rings push down to contain the coins, which were inserted into a small slit opening at the middle of the bag. These purses were often hand made from patterns found in the magazines of the time.
Length: ~ 10 1/2" (incl. fringe)
