Another beauty from Judith Leiber! How many treasures did this fashion genius create??? Countless I think! The shape of this minaudiere is unique because it is a cylinder. It is made from a shiny gold metal that is grooved. Inside these grooves are lines of sparkling Swarovski crystals. The grooves are deep and the "stripes" have dimension and depth. The grooves are not straight across but meander in a diagonal manner, sort of a stylized swirly pattern. Hard to describe, best to take a look at the pictures. The result is a sleek purse that is modern but has a deco vibe. It is dramatic and makes a huge statement. The sides are the shiny gold metal. It opens with a push in tab that is the gold metal with a "cap" made of silver metal. There is a gorgeous jewelry quality serpentine gold chain with a drop of 21". This chain can be tucked inside the purse when not in use. The inside is lined with a gold lame leather. The gold Judith Leiber identification panel is affixed inside. The inside is in great condition without significant indications age and wear. Comes with its original light blue felt dust bag. The purse measures 7"w x 5"h x 3"d. The bag presents nicely. However, there are about a dozen missing crystals but you have to look closely to see this.*** Also there is a spot which appears to be a very faint dent...this can be felt but cannot be seen unless you are looking for it. This purse is priced accordingly. The bag stands out from afar. It is classic and will always be in style. Perfect for formal occasions. Here's an opportunity to own a Leiber beauty at a very reasonable price. Every fashionista should have one! Condition: Very Good VINTAGE Condition
***I did not have the crystals repaired because it would raise the price significantly. However, if you buy this bag and want it repaired, I can arrange for that to be done.
