After the ball. there's another ball! It can be said for certain that there will always be formal events to go to. Why not be prepared by already possessing a Judith Leiber evening bag especially designed for such occasions? The bag being offered today is perfect for this occasion. The bag is medium size and can hold most cell phones of today. It has straight and curved lines and the top is scalloped and covered with the silk material. The top is narrower than the bottom. There is ruching at the top resulting in gentle and soft pleats and flows. The color is a kind of putty with a lot of grey and brown in it. It is very neutral. There is a huge baroque pearl at the time encased in a gold band. The pearl is pressed in order to open the bag. The show stopper is the large and dimensional rose at the top. It is very layered and very thick and dense. The petals are trimmed in thin gold and they are encrusted with sparkling Swarovski crystals that capture the light in a manner that only these Austrian crystals can. The leaves are encrusted with emerald green crystals. The rose significantly protrudes from the bag and has a magnificent presence. There is a gold tone jewelry quality chain that is substantial and can be tucked inside with not in use. The drop is 19". There is a tiny snag on one side. The inside is lined with the same silk and there are 2 open slip pockets. The gold Judith Leiber New York identification panel is affixed inside. A small leather coin purse is included as well as a mirror and comb in their own brown felt bag. The inside is in fabulous condition as though it was never used. The bag measures 8"w x 6 1/2"h x 1 1/2'd. The bag is in great condition. There is a spot of the top corner where the silk was pulled too tightly. You would never know unless you actually was looking for it. Otherwise, fabulous. I have seen this bag sell for over $1,000. It is just beautiful. I have one in my collection and I always amass accolades when worn. Quintessential Leiber! Condition: Excellent - VINTAGE Condition ***
***Although it appears to look as though there is soiling on the fabric, the silk is absolutely clean. The light from the camera can “play” tricks and appear as discoloration. The fabric is very, very clean.
