When one takes the time to study this Judith Leiber handbag, her genius becomes apparent. This is much more than a simple silk woven bag with crystals. It is a detailed and well thought out work of art. It is on the small side and is of the clamper style. It is made of strands of silk. There is a soft sheen to the fabric. There are narrow strands and slightly wider ones. The color is a soft and comfortable cocoa which also is very regal. The strands are woven. However, it is the pattern of the weaving that is just amazing. The strands are not simply vertical and horizontal but they appear in a "step" pattern. In addition, having both wide and narrow ones create an usual effect. Also, the light reflects off the silk so that the vertical ones seem darker than the horizontal ones when actually they are the same color. The clamper frame is covered with the silk and there is a border of bronze/copper colored tiny Swarovski crystals. They are set between a gold metal border. The clamper closes tightly. There is a detachable silk carry strap with a drop of 14". The inside is lined with the cocoa silk. There is an open silk pocket. There is a round mirror and a small coin purse. The "Judith Leiber" gold tone identification panel is affixed inside. The inside is in wonderful condition without any issues. The purse measures 7 1/2"w x 4 1/2"h x 1"d. The purse is in great condition. There is a minor small smudge on the clamper face but, all in all ,this is very minor and really not very visible (remember the camera magnifies the images). This purse is very classy and sophisticated. It is timeless and striking. And, as previously stated, the design is well thought out resulting in a wearable work of art! Naturally, its a Leiber!!!!!!
