Engraved Victorian Patch and Purse, Sterling

Here is an elegant, engraved sterling silver ladies purse having a 10" chain and shaped as an octagon. The inside cover is a mirror....still in pristine condition while the bottom has a secured area, half of which which I think held patches of various sizes with the other half is hollow and was used to hold folded currency. This small area is slightly discolored....caused by use as a vinaigrette???? Signed Sterling, there is a maker's mark but, I cannot decipher it. The monogram on the front is as artfully designed as the overall engraving. Has a 3" diameter and weighs 3.7 troy oz. A beautiful piece.
