Another amazing purse by Judith Leiber! In this case, the leather seems to change with the light, that is, it is sometimes a light gold and other times it appears as silver. The opulent hardware is a deep Etruscan gold so the bag can definitely be worn with gold but it also can be worn with silver if one doesn't mind mixing the gold hardware with the silver color( some people are purists and don't mix their metal colors, I happen to like mixing it all the time). The purse is small and is accordion style with a front flap. The leather, as stated, is a soft light gold leather that can be seen at times like silver leather. The leather is strong and durable and has a slight crackle pattern. There is thick tubular trim around the borders that is capped with a gold piece. It is the thick ornate gold hardware that takes the bag to another level. The gold is very detailed and chunky. The front is adorned with a large and imposing ornament which houses a huge Swarovski multi faceted oval crystal. The stone is just shy of 3/4". The entire piece is very dimensional and gives the bag depth. The bag opens just underneath this piece by pushing in the hardware that is situated there. These dramatic ornaments are also on each side of the bag and the carry strap attaches to each. Stones such as these are exceptional and spectacular and are rarely used in Leiber's early designs. There is a double carry strap and the drop is 18". When the bag is opened there are three compartments. It is lined with a rich taupe satin fabric. Each open compartment has an open slip pocket. An early Judith Leiber gold metal identification panel is affixed inside. The inside is almost spotless. The measurements of the bag are 6"w x 4 1/2"h x 3 1/2"d. The bag is in great condition. There is a "blemish" just above the ornamental piece but it can barely be seen and is not significant. What is important is that the camera magnifies everything to at least 10X so that any "blemish" is greatly exaggerated. It is there but not as prominent as it is depicted in the pictures Otherwise the bag is in great condition with expected minuscule indications of use or age. I just love this bag. It is so versatile and is a timeless piece. It has a bit of pizzazz and yet it is tastefully done. A bit of an unusual piece for Leiber. However, great of course! Condition: Excellent - VINTAGE Condition
