This type of coin purse is called “Gamaguchi” in Japan. “Gama” means “frog’s mouth”. Yes, it just looks like a frog opened up its big mouth when you open up the purse! A tiny gamaguchi is useful as a vanity case, accessory case and a stylish inner bag besides just putting loose coins. I carry around my thimbles with this purse.
You might be wondering about this particular purse frame I used in the sample photo. The frame was imported from Japan and its antique finished gold makes this frame so noble and valuable. I like its quality and simplicity of design.
As you can see below, I have arranged for you to be able to purchase this particular purse frame.
