1950s vintage Lewis purse, black wool handbag w/ tortoise plastic clasp

Vintage 1950s Lewis label black wool purse (about 12" x 7" over the bag) and leather coin purse, in good used condition. The wool fabric, strap and lining material are all in very good shape, and the tortoise plastic clasp looks good and works well. 

This hasn't been used since 1954... we found the ticket stub and other dated papers still inside the bag! It smells strongly of mothballs, someone took great pains storing this piece.
