Beetle Wing Purse, circa 1830-50 | Beetle wings became popular decoration during the Regency period and by the 1850s, they were full-on trendy. The chenille swags on this particular bag were popular during the 1830s and 40s, which helps date this particular example. The museum dates it much later, but this bag is no later than 1865.

The "Southern Belle" Is A Racist Fiction: "Bu-bu-but tradition! Sorry. Your tradition was someone else's nightmare. Pining for those days, even if you're too detached from national history to realize it, is pining for the comforts of whiteness when black people were property. You ignore it, you can romanticize it, and you can deny it, but you don't get to pick and choose the portions of history that actually happened"
Sometime between Reconstruction, this episode of MTV: True Life, and the hundred-thousandth wedding held on a plantation in South Carolina, the term Southern Belle became just another friendly identifier to put in your Twitter bio, a throwaway regional label no weightier than Cali Surfer Dude. But the difference between SoCal pride and honoring your Southern gentility is that the latter celebrates the ugliest stain in America's history.
