|Description||Steel-beaded push-knob coin purse, circa 1890. Could be a child's. The frame is rounded in shape, as it the pouch area. There is a small suspension ring that suggests that once could have attached it to a chatelaine or something else. The beads appear to be cut-steel which were popular in the late 19th-century.|
