I liken this bag to that old pair of black pumps that are your "go to" shoes. They are comfortable and you know they are reliable and at the same time, they look great. That's this bag! Judith Leiber designed this style way back towards the beginning of her career and this style came in different sizes. The versions were either horizontal or vertical. This handbag is the horizontal version, not found as often as the vertical one. The bag is essentially rectangular with curves. It is medium sized. The bag is made from the skins of the python. The skins are arranged in horizontal panels that are attached on top of each other divided by thin python trim. The color is a deep, deep black and the skin are in great condition with minimal lifting (even though, as I have often said, lifting is the natural aging process of the skins and not a defect). The skins have a sheen to them. The sides of the bag tapers towards the top. Outrageous and heavy chains come out of the bag at the sides. There are two chains, one gold tone the other silver tone. The chains appears to be a box type. They are jewelry quality. They are thick and chunky and both brightly shine. The drop is 12". There isn't any snap or closure to the bag. The top 4" of the inside of the bag is the python skins. Underneath the bag is lined in black leather. There is an inside zippered pocket lined in black grosgrain fabric. A small black leather coin purse lined in grosgrain ( of course, this is Judith Leiber!) is included in the bag. There is a leather tag stating "Neiman Marcus by Judith Leiber" as well as the "Judith Leiber" gold tone identification plaque. The inside is in great condition without any significant issues to note. The measurements are 9 1/2"w x 10"h x 3/4"d. The bag is in great condition again without any significant issues to note. This is the bag to use when going out to dinner and you don't want to lug that big and chunky everyday bag that resembles in size a piece of luggage. This is the solution to that situation and many others. It is timeless and classic. It is slick and smart. It is versatile and quality made. A bag "for all seasons" just like that pair of shoes!
