Brief History of the Love Token

Also known as a Puzzle Purse or Love Knot these intricate folded paper objects often contained romantic messages, poems or symbolic imagery and were used to exchange personal messages between lovers in the early 1800s. On each folded section, the sender would write a message that the receiver could then read by opening the puzzle purse fold by fold, revealing more of the message until reaching the final heartfelt message at the centre.
