One look at this purse and thoughts go to summer. The colors of the bag are linen white, creamy egg shell, sunshine yellow and cool turquoise. These are the colors that represents that sultry and easy going season called summer. Judith Leiber must have known this when she designed this bag. The bag is small and there is ruching under the jeweled frame. The leather is soft but very durable. Considering its color and age, the leather is in great condition. The linen white color is a shade off bright white. There is a gorgeous jeweled panel on the top that is adorned with Swarovski crystals and white semi precious stones. The panel has a border with clear and sunshine yellow (amber) tiny crystals. The panel has a stylized pattern of creamy white semi precious chalcedony (?) stones that are triangular. They alternate between slanted accents of sparkling clear and amber crystals done in a gold tone floral design. The effect of all these elements is a panel that has a glittering "deco" vibe. There is a raised clasp that also has these Swarovski crystals and a square turquoise stone in its center. There is a jewelry quality silver tone chain with a drop of 15 1/2". The inside is lined with a milky white fabric. There is an open slip pocket. The silver tone Judith Leiber identification plaque is affixed inside. The inside has signs of wear and age but considering that the lining is white, its not too bad. The bag measures 6 1/4"w x 6"h x 1"d. The bag is in great condition, there is a pencil point indentation on the front. This is a very early Leiber bag, circa late 70's, early'80's. It is evidence of Leiber's genius, just take a careful look at the panel. If you are in a warm weather climate (endless summer), going on a cruise to a tropical area or just hanging around and enjoying the season, this is the perfect bag to have!
