Date and origin please

Hi all. I’ve just bought this purse and have been trying to I’d by googling. I think it’s London 1881, but can’t quite tell. Sorry, the first one has all the marks but is dark, the second light but has a pin through the lion passant. The maker’s mark in the top right reads ‘ES’ in a diamond.
Thank

Yes, it’s London, but the date letter is “g” for 1902. The “F” is an import mark. ES is Eugene Szekely and is the importer and not the maker. His mark was registered in June 1902 when he described himself as a “foreign agent”.
