Inspired by the whimsical and fantastic small embroidered bags worked during the 16th and 17th centuries, Victoria has created this endearing little frog purse in two sizes.
Worn hung by a cord from the waist, these intricate and imaginative designs traditionally borrowed from the natural world and were often given as gifts, filled with gold coins.
Worked in needlelace on a wire cordonnet, each frog is highlighted with gold purl and lined with silk.
