bulse (BUHLS) - n., a purse or bag for carrying or measuring valuables (such as diamonds or gold dust); more loosely, a parcel of jewels.


After the practice in the East Indies, conveyed to us via Portuguese bolsa, purse, from Medieval Latin bursa, from Late Latin bursa, ox hide, from Greek byrsa.
