Here is an antique French beaded miser's purse, also called a pocket purse pouch or a miner's purse. It is hand knit in dark green and beige, beaded with black glass seed beads and cut steel beads. It is 9" long without the beaded looped fringe at the ends. 10 3/4" long with the fringe, and 2 1/4" wide. It is pinched shut in the center with two silver plated rings that slide back and forth to allow access to the slit opening. It is in very good condition. The silver rings needs a bit of polishing.
