Queen Alexandra, Consort to Edward VII, was a style leader and revived the fashion for chatelaine purses. Turquoise adds interest to this hinged model in the form of a butterfly. Its exotic design reflects the contemporary vogue for ‘orientalism’.Pencilled inside on an oval tab made of ivory is the name ‘Brenda Tapp’, presumably the owner, along with an address.
