Mother-of-Pearl and Silk Change Purse


A change purse, lined with silk, containing 3 compartments. The outer shell is mother-of-pearl with brass edging and clasp. It looks like a real oyster shell. Affixed to the top is a plate with the word "Soubenie" inscribed. Could this be a form of "souvenir"? If it is two words, (although it doesn't seem to be), it might be "Sou benie", translated from the French language as "often blessed".
