This purse is the quintessential classic Leiber purse. It is unmistakable Leiber and was made in many different ways, some were very simple and some were more ornate. This bag is small in size although it does hold my iphone 6.
The bag has round and straight "lines." It is covered with python skins that are dyed a deep black. The skins are glazed so that they have a brilliant shine. The scales are not lifting. There is slight ruching resulting in simple folds. The bag is not flat but is designed so that 5 sections of skin are connected by thin python piping and this results in a bag with an uneven surface. The frame is a gold tone metal with strips of the python skins between the metal outline. The gold tone is very shiny and bright. The clasp, also shiny gold tone, comes from behind and there is a heart shaped accent that is layered and raised and has a black onyx stone in the middle. Simple and very attractive. There is a gold tone serpentine chain with a drop of 20". It can be tucked inside the bag using Leiber's internal mechanism that allows this chain not to be seen. The inside is lined with black grosgrain fabric. There is a zippered pocket and the gold tone "Judith Leiber" plaque is affixed inside. "Made in Spain" is also stamped inside. The inside is very clean. The bag measures 8 1/2"w x 5 1/4"h x 1 1/2"d. The bag is in wonderful condition. There are a few spots on the chain that are not completely flat but this does not appear to be problematic. If you need a purse that can easily go from day to night and is created by the queen of all purse manufacturers, then this is the purse for you. A necessity for any fashionista. Condition: Excellent - VINTAGE Condition
