Nantucket Purses

Nantucket purses were introduced in the mid-twentieth century and became status symbols among the yachting crowd that meandered back and forth between Nantucket Island and the Riviera. Our designs are classic, with tight cane weave, hardwood tops and bottoms, bone or horn knobs and pegs, handcarved bone ornaments and rattan-wrapped leather hinges and closures.

Nantucket Purse with Handcarved Ornament Nantucket Purse with Handcarved Ornament

These purses are classic designs with cane-on-cane weave and bone knobs and latches.

Lids are woven around solid ash ornamented with scrimshaw, a nautical folk art dating back to the mid-nineteenth century. Artisans etch the image on bone with a sharp tool and then carefully ink it over. All our scrimshaw artwork is done by hand, and no two ornaments are exactly alike.

9 1/4 x 6 3/4 x 6 3/4" h.
