Finding a vintage Judith Leiber purse that has never been used is quite special. Especially if it is really old. That is the case with the Leiber silk evening purse being offered today. It's an "oldie but goodie" probably dating back to the late 1970's. It is a predictor of all the great and fabulous purse that were yet to be created by this genius. The purse is simple but elegant. It has a refined sophistication. It is on the large size for a dressy evening purse and can hold all of our modern day necessities (?). The shape combines linear straight lines with many curves. In fact, the use of curves is a major element of this bag. The body of the bag is made of a milk chocolate brown silk that is quilted so that it has a slight puffy look. The brown is a soft brown and it is comforting, just like chocolate. Not an "in your face" brown. The stitches form a wave like pattern that "loops" all over the bag. The pattern suggest fluidity and movement. The frame is curved and straight. It is thin and made from a bright gold tone metal. Some of the finish is brushed tone. The front and the back are the same. There is a channel between the top and bottom metal frame that is divided into three sections, each having a black leather strip on which there are very small clear and sparkling Swarovski crystals. The crystals add a sublime illumination to the bag. The clasp comprises the space above the middle segment and it is somewhat curved. The leather and crystals repeat the same pattern as the frame. The clasp is lifted upwards in order to open the bag. There is a larger quilted patch right under the frame for your finger to grasp when using the clasp. Again Leiber thinks of everything! There is a gorgeous bright gold serpentine chain to use as a carry chain with a drop of 14" This chain can be tucked inside using Leiber's internal mechanism. The inside is done in the same chocolate silk. There are 2 open pockets on one side and another on the other side. The purse includes a small silk coin purse,a mirror in its original wrapping and a care card. It comes in its original box. There isn't a dust bag. The gold tone "Judith Leiber"identification label is affixed inside. The inside is spotless. The measurements of the bag are 10"w x 6 1/2"h x 1"d. This bag was probably kept in its box over the years. It was never used. This color obviously works with all browns and other neutral tones. It is graceful, elegant and charming. Obviously for a sophisticated lady. The bag exudes "confidence."
