Title:
Small purse in the shape of a frog: 17th century
Description:
Small purse in the shape of a frog. It is made in two halves; the back is on a hard base with padding on top, the underside is on a more pliable base. The two are seamed together to just below the front legs and are lined with greenish-yellow silk with a gusset at each side to form a tiny purse with a drawstring fastening. The legs are made of wire and shaped with padding. The whole body is covered with poor quality silver-gilt thread wrapped around a visible dark cream silk core in detached buttonhole stitch. The sides of the body and the back are decorated with lines of couched gilt coil. The eyes are made from black beads.
