Could the era that gave us Puck - not to mention Henry VIII, history's most self-indulgent monarch since Nero - be less than playful? Not likely! Little princess Liz, herself, might have practiced up to fund colonies and fight armadas with a toy purse on a frame like this one. It was the perfect accessory for a Tudor tot learning to say "MINE" along with "GO TO THE TOWER" - and it's perfect now as a whimsical pendant for an adult or child. Just add a cord or ribbon and tie it on your neck - or wrist - or cellphone, for that matter.

Beautifully detailed (on both sides, as pictured here) and measuring about 2" wide by 5/8" high, this fascinating conversation piece was acquired from a leading English antiquities dealer. It's exceedingly rare. Chances are, you'll never see another like it; indeed, none of us will.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping, with an equivalent discount on international delivery, and gift-wrap is always and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
