The chain-mail purse with four minuscule pendants, the interior with marks "ALPACA" and "MADE IN U.S.A." and a tag stamped with number "77 95 55 38", with chains attached to a belt-clip. The ogival clip finely chased with an Oriental lotus amidst stylised acanthus leaves. This item is a tangible reflection of the syncretic “East meets West” identity of pre-war Peranakans. Early 20th century The purse, 7.4cm wide, 18cm long with chains and pendants; The clip, 6 cm long with ring
