Mid 19th Century beaded miser's purse, ca. 1860. Origin: Germany. Two yellow rings. Four metal acorns at the corners. Very good to excelent condition.

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.
