Please enlarge all of the photos. In the photos you will see that the purse frame is hallmarked English silver as is the chatelaine. The purse frame design is similar to the design of the chatelaine hook (angels, roses, birds, cartouches), however the chatelaine hook is earlier than the purse frame - probably Victorian Both the chatelaine hook and chatelaine purse are in fine condition.
The purse pouch was probably originally made of silk or beaded fabric which had deteriorated. The deteriorated purse was replaced with true leather lined with silk taffeta.
FYI: The chatelaine purse is as usable today as it was originally. Enjoy!
