Teardrop Belt Purse
These purses are made from vegetable tanned calf and goat skins that have been dyed using period dyes and they are made entirely by hand.The design for this purse is taken from "The Doctor's Visit" by Jan Steen 1661 and is a typical 17th century style. It is a draw string fronted bag with a stiffer back which helps keep it's shape. It hangs from a belt loop and is kept closed with a button flap. The main pocket is 9 x 7 inches (23 x 18 cms) when open and it is 12 inches long including the belt loop.
