Upon first glance this minaudiere seems to be like many other "little treasures" by Judith Leiber. However, there was something about it that peaked my interest. I couldn't get my eyes off of it realizing that there was something "special" about it. It appears as a gold tone crystal covered minaudiere. Yet the crystals are not gold tone but are clear (silver) that give off a golden glimmer. Sort of like "aurora borealis." I have never seen this before and marvel at its ingenuity. The shape of the bag is rectangular with curved sides and a slight bow to the front and back. The crystals are all present and as previously stated, give off a golden radiance that illuminates as the light hits it. The bag opens with a small push down tab that is covered with these crystals. There is a jewelry quality serpentine silver tone chain that has a drop of 18". The chain can be removed by opening its lobster claws which connect to Leiber's internal clutch/shoulder mechanism. The inside is lined with silver calf leather. It is hallmarked with the identification silver tone metal plaque stating "Leiber New York." The inside is very clean with only minimal signs of age or wear. The measurements are 5"w x 4"h x 2"d. The bag comes with its original pink dust bag and Leiber box. This gem is in wonderful condition. This minaudiere is absolutely gorgeous. Worn with either gold or silver accessories, its shine and glimmer will cause some to put on their "sunglasses." The brilliance of this bag is just another testament to Leiber's brilliance!!! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
