Antique Chinese Silk Archerís Ring Holder or Purse

Antique Chinese silk archerís ring holder or purse. Archerís rings were originally worn on the thumb to protect the archerís thumb as it pulled the bow string. They evolved into a symbol of high socially rank. This cylindrical blue silk ring holder is decorated with couched gold metallic thread depicting flowers and fruits. The sliding top is edged in black and white fabric. Woven green silk drawstring; glass bead on bottom tassel. Good condition; some wear overall, especially to black and white edging. Measures 2 1/4Ē by 2Ē.
