Three in one!!! This bag has three purses attached as one. Such ingenuity and creativity are demonstrated in this very early Leiber bag, circa 1970's. When held, the three bags are stepped, when set down, the three bags are even in height. The front of the first bag has four strips of fabric each of which are embroidered in different stitches. The fabric is horizontal and are separated with strips of gold leather. Each fabric is distinct but all have a light beige background. Flowers are embroidered using different techniques including the silk screen stitch and needlepoint stitches. One fabric strip contrasts with the other three, which are similar in feeling and coloring. All this combines to create an ethnic and folksy appearance. The back of this initial purse is a leather similar to gold lame. Behind this purse are two purses made of this gold crackled leather. There are gold leather loops at the ends of each purse that connect to gold tone metal hardware rounds. This is how the bags are attached. All bags close with a zipper that has a decorative pull tag. The thin leather carry strap is attached to a round loop at each end . It has a drop of 18" to the top of the bottom (first) bag. All bags are lined with a light gold satin fabric. The first and second bags have zippered pockets as well as identification labels, the second being a leather label stating "Judith Leiber for Bonwit Teller, the last label being a gold tone metal plaque with the Leiber signature. There are minor indications of age and wear on the inside of all purses, nothing major. The measurements are 8.5"w x 6"h x 1.5"d. The bag is in great condition especially considering its age, there is metal wear on the pull tags of the zippers. This is such a great bag that epitomizes Leiber's talent. It is roomy and can hold all of today's necessities (If this doesn't do it, you are carrying too much!!!). It is unusual and different. It makes a statement and it is a Leiber!
