Purses, Pockets, Pouches

More than 150 examples are on display in this exhibition of men’s and women’s bags and purses from four centuries of European and American design. These knitted, netted, beaded, appliqued, and embroidered examples were intended for holding a range of objects, including tobacco, combs, love letters, gifts, perfume, and, of course, coins.
