Sometimes "less is more." That is the case with this lovely Judith Leiber bag that can be worn as a clutch or a shoulder bag.
Judith Leiber is best known for her handbag designs that incorporate glitz and ornamentation to the design. However, this skilled designer also knows how to design a bag so that it exudes style, sophistication and simplicity. Sometimes that's something to be said! This bag is very pleasing. It is small to medium size. It accentuates curves, incorporating them in the frame design and the shape of the bag. The color is a soft navy blue. i know that sounds like a dichotomy but the blue is dark yet it has a "powdery" effect making it soothing to look out. Not at all bold and stark as navy usually is. The skins used are those of the python. The scales are in very good condition. The is a soft gloss or shine to the skins. The frame is a ribbed gold tone metal. It has a "wave" effect. The closure comes from behind and is highlighted with a patch of the blue skins. There is a jewelry quality serpentine gold tone chain. It has a drop of 20". The chain can be inserted inside using Leiber's internal mechanism. The inside is lined with a navy blue nylon type fabric. There is a zippered pocket and is hallmarked with the Judith Leiber gold tone identification panel. The inside is very clean. The measurements of the bag are 9"w x 5 1/2"h x 1+" d. The bag is in great condition with only minascule signs of war or age. This is a lovely bag for those occasions when other accessories take the forefront. Yet it can stand alone being charming, stylish and classic. A purse for all seasons! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
