Nothing defines elegant evening wear as a snakeskin purse with Swarovski crystals by Judith Leiber. A bag such as this is classic and timeless and its elegance and sophistication is unsurpassed. The bag is typically shaped with rounded corners. There is plentiful ruching providing generous pleating throughout. All pleating for Leiber bags is done by hand resulting in a visual appearance that is creates depth and dimension. The pleating on this particular bag is especially dominant and significant. The skins are python and they are highly glazed and shiny. They are dyed a deep black. However, it is the frame that takes center stage. The front frame is designed with a "deco" vibe and it is asymmetrical in shape. It is fairly simplistic in design but "packs quite a punch." The frame is a panel encrusted with black Swarovski crystals which tapers from 1" on one end to 1/4"at the other. The crystals are shiny and sparkle as they reflect the light. The background is silver tone and the silver borders the frame minimally. The frame resembles, to me, a darting lighting bolt! The bag opens and closes with a push up rectangular silver tone clasp that is capped with a black onyx stone. The bag has a silver tone serpentine chain that has a drop of 20". The chain can be contained inside the bag using the optional internal Leiber hardware. The inside is lined with a black satin. There is an open slip pocket and a zippered pocket. The "Judith Leiber" signature silver tone identification panel is affixed inside. The inside is in great condition with barely a sign of wear or age. However, there is the residue of a glue label. The bag measures 10"w x 6"h x 1 1/2"d. The bag is in wonderful condition with only the slightest vintage indications. Owning a bag such as this, makes you yearn for more "dress up" occasions. Luckily, the bag is should last a lifetime of formal events. Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
