Unused netted miser purse found in Regency sewing box

A special find!

This unused miser with an attached ring, came from a dealer in Great Britain who purchased a Regency sewing box at Auction.

Regency Sewing Box

Misers purses were often made at home. The unused purse with the Acorn scent end was one of three misers purses, along with sewing tools that were found in this Regency Era sewing chest in Great Britain.
