What a smart and sophisticated purse this Judith Leiber bag is!!! It appears to be relatively simple but upon closer look it has a very creative and unusual dyed pattern on the karung skins. The bag is medium to large and it has a stylized shape with a lot of curves as well as linear lines. The top is scalloped. The karung skins are soft and they have a slight sheen. Three sections constitute the front and back of the bag separated by trim made of the skins. It is the dyed pattern that takes center stage. It is dyed a medium beige and on top of that are wide vertical strips of brown and an orangey red (rust like). Your eye immediately goes to the striking red but that is not all. The spaces between these wide lines are dotted with what appears to be animal spots! These spots are done in a brownish color and all the colors seem to blend together. It is unique and gives the bag energy and panache. There isn't any frame to the bag but, as mentioned, the top is scalloped and this characteristic is very significant. There are two gorgeous serpentine gold tone chains that can be tucked inside the bag when one wishes not to use it as a shoulder bag. The drop is 15". The inside has three compartments, two are open on the sides and one is closed in the middle. This middle closed compartment has a shiny gold tone frame and a kiss lock to close it. All of the compartments are lined with a mauve colored grosgrain fabric. The closed compartment has an open slip pocket and a zippered one. There is a small coin purse made out of the same mauve grosgrain fabric. The Judith Leiber signature identification plaque is affixed inside. The inside is very clean with the most minimal indications of age and wear. The measurements of the bag are 11"w (at it widest) x 7"h x 2"d. The bag is in great vintage condition without significant issues to mention. If you just read the description and didn't see the bag, you might question whether the different factors would work. It sounds so strange. However, whom ever designed this bag knew all about creating an interesting and unusual bag that actually works. I just love it.....it is different from most animal print bags. This one is not in your face but then again it is not shy! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
