I ran across this great article on terminology by Leimomi Oakes (The Dreamstress), defining reticules and indispensables (which appear to be the same thing), and though I would share! These little "purses" are incredibly fun little accessories, often made up in bright colors with lots of bits and bobs attached.

These are a couple of my current favourites, via the MET:

Reticule, American, 1820-40, via the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Reticule, Mexican, 1818-30, via the Metropolitan Museum of Art
