Purse and netsuke
Edo period, 19th century AD
This style of purse, as well as pressed metal fittings like the roundel of the manjū (rice dumpling)-type netsuke, were fashionable even after the introduction of Western dress into Japan after the Meiji Restoration in 1868. The purse is made from leather and textile.
