Blue Georgian Cut Steel Misers Purse Circa 1790

Blue Georgian Cut Steel Misers Purse Circa 1790 Georgian  Misers Purse
The antiques business is sometimes very strange, having not seen a Georgian misers purse for years we now find ourselves in the fortunate position of being able to offer a second for sale. Antiques are like buses, one can wait for ever and then they turn up in multiples.

Misers purses gained popularity during the 17th century and basically consisted of a long ornately decorated fabric tube with a central slit and two rings that can be moved to seal the purse. The configuration of the purse made it hard for pickpockets to steel from pockets and allowed ladies to fasten them over their belts.

This particular miser purse is in blue fabric decorated with cut steel (it sticks to a magnet) arranged in geometric patterns and is terminated by four lovely steel tapered baubles at one end and three at the other. The purse is approximately 10 inches (25.4cm) long and is in a very good antique condition
