"Absolutely gorgeous" best describes this fabulous silk purse by Judith Leiber. It is adorned with Swarovski crystals and it has just the right amount of pizzazz. Not too glitzy but enough to give it a flair and for it to make a statement. The body of the purse is a black silk that is not too shiny. The bag tapers upwards and is slightly wider at the bottom than at the top. The frame is what catches the eye. It is slightly smaller than the width of the bag and it is trimmed in thin gold metal. Inside the gold channel are Swarovski crystals in silver and black and there are additional round glass stones in a soft red. The silver crystals form a small flower pattern that is surrounded by the black crystals. The red glass stones "pop" up between the flowers. Really gorgeous. The front and the back of the frame are identical and both sides bow out slightly. The red stones, having more depth than the silver and black crystals, give the frame dimension. The bag opens with a "pull out mechanism" that is located on one side. There is a silk carry strap with a drop of 20". That can be tucked inside and not seen. In this case the purse is used as a clutch. There are four small gold buns on the bottom for protection. The inside is a black silk and there is a zippered pocket, an open pocket and a small silk coin purse. The "Judith Leiber" gold identification plaque is affixed inside. The inside is in great condition without any issues to note. The purse measures 5 3/4"h x 8 3/4" w x 2"d. The purse is also in great condition. The top ends of the carry strap have a little fraying and the gussets show the most minor wear. Otherwise, fabulous. It can go from slightly formal dinners to black tie weddings. It is a real gem to enjoy. And naturally, it is a Leiber!
