A rare, early 17th century drawstring purse, worked in golden and silver metallic threads in plaited braid stitches and edged with green silk thread. Classically Jacobean, this purse features a knotted square design and is decorated with three plaited tassel balls to the bottom edge and two large balls at each top corner. Lined in pink silk, now discolored. Great condition for its age; drawstring and small sections of stitching are lacking. Measures 5 1/4” by 4 7/8”.
