Mr. Bingley's Miser's Purse

Self-effacing Jane would never have made Mr. Bingley a miser's purse to attract his romantic attention, as a more forward young lady might have. Once engaged, however, it would have been entirely appropriate for her to knit him a monogrammed purse with their initials on the front and the year of their marriage on the back. With fashionably masculine silver beads, Mr. Bingley's Miser's Purse is typical of a gentleman's miser's purse of the time. The small coin purse was intended to fit in a pocket, averaging between 3½ and 4½ inches long when folded in half. Silver coins were stored in one side and gold in the other. In a dimly lit carriage or shop, having one square and one rounded end simplified finding the correct change.
