Reconstructed medieval ring-frame purse.

Post by mattb »

After a trip to view a collection of original medieval artefacts we studied many purse bars and frames and came away with lots of ideas. This is the result of the first attempt.

The purse frame, a late medieval/Tudor purse bar sits in the middle of the ring in this picture.

My Partner Vicky then reconstructed a purse around the frame.

We plan to do further reconstructions of both frames and purses, I want a long trapezoidal one myself for a start!

Hope you guys like.
