A set of three vintage Chinese coin purses made from silk with embroidered pockets at the ends. Each of the pockets are embroidered with different designs of bamboo, insects, stylized bats, orchids, and peonies and are in a variety of contrasting colors. They are edged with brocade ribbon and have accents of gold thread. The coin purses were worn over a belt or sash.
We are listing them as a set but would consider selling them individually.
