Royal Memorabilia - Antique Crocodile Leather & Silver Purse Birmingham 1899

A very rare chance to buy a piece of Royal Memoribbila

This silver mounted crocodile leather purse was presented to the Duchess of Connaught, Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia, the wife to Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn.

Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn was the seventh child and third son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. He served as the Governor General of Canada, the tenth since Canadian Confederation and the only British prince to do so. In 1910 he was appointed Grand Prior of the Order of St John and held this position until 1939. At St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, on 13 March 1879, Prince Arthur married Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia, the daughter of Prince Frederick Charles and a great-niece of the German Emperor, Arthur's godfather, Wilhelm I.


Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia was a German princess, and later a member of the British Royal Family after marriage to Prince Arthur. She also served as the Viceregal Consort of Canada, when her husband served as the Governor General of Canada from 1911 to 1916. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden and Queens Margrethe II of Denmark and Anne-Marie of Greece are among her great-grandchildren.


In 1900 both Prince Arthur and Princess Louise Margaret where invited to open the new YMCA building in Newcastle. Upon attending the invent on the 9th of May 1900, they were greeted with gifts from the YMCA and this purse was gifted to the duchess (the 1900 opening is recorded on the Newcastle YMCA website).
