Just when you think you have seen it all, a spectacular Leiber bag comes along that in all my years, I have never seen. It is Leiber doing vintage so, in a sense, it is vintage doing vintage. I just love this one! It is sort of a curved shape with the bottom being wider than the top. It is covered with the skins of the karung lizard, a exotic skin that Leiber preferred. It has been dyed a soft mauve color and then given a gold wash. The bag has a gentle gold metallic shine. Karung skins have very small diamond shaped scales, When dyed a lighter color these scales take on a slightly darker hue than the background. It is the case here but the gold wash diminishes the “pop out “ effect. The show stopper is the tremendous multi layered flower that is positioned at the top of the bag. It covers about a third of the front of the bag. It is made from “feathered” petals that are a wheat colored velvet. There also are petals made from a light colored net like gauze material. This gives the flower a very retro and vintage look. There are layers upon layers of petals. As if this wasn’t enough ( you know Leiber!) hanging down are strands of various sized and shaped beads, including gold fluted ones, round pewter balls and faux eggshell colored pearls. These strands are densely bunched together and they sway with movement. There are 6 strands and they end just beneath the bottom of the bag. The bag opens/closes with a faux pearl push down tab that is surrounded by a decorative gold metal band. There is an optional carry strap made from the karung skins with a segment of beads at each end. This can be tucked inside when the bag is worn as a clutch. The drop is 7”. The inside is lined with s light pink satiny fabric. There is an open slip pocket and the “Judith Leiber New York” gold panel is affixed inside. There is a JL mirror in its original brown felt bag. There is some cardboard kept inside to support its shape. The inside is very clean with minor indications of use or wear. The bag measures 7”w x 7”w x 2”d. The bag is in great condition with minuscule vintage signs. This is such a lovely bag. I especially love it because of its vintage appeal. And then it is a Judith Leiber.....what more could you want? Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
