2 small vintage handbags, need help identifying
I am in possession of 2 small handbags that were part of the estate left by a close relative and I am seeking information about the bags to determine their age and their value.
One is a small black leather bag with a COACH label affixed to the inside lining, the people at COACH told me this bag predates their serial numbering system.
The other is a small white seed pearl covered bag with a satin lining that has the name and address of the establishment in Paris where it was originally purchased stitched to the inside lining: Ch. Lesselbaum 58 Rue De Paradis PARIS. The bag has a clasp designed in a leaf & flower floral pattern, encrusted with what I guess to be zirconium.
I am attaching photos:

I am just now reading this. The black bag looks like a Bonnie Cashin original. Wonderful find!! It is called a Small shopper Tote I believe. I have a tan one like it. I am not familiar with the other bag though but they are beautiful!!
