When you have a favorite color, you just can't resist. When you have a favorite designer, you just can't resist. When a purse is done in your favorite color and by your favorite designer, there isn't any hesitation, you must buy it! That was the situation when I saw this red purse by Judith Leiber.....I just had to buy it.! I hope, looking at the bag, you understand my passion. The bag is very rounded and it is small to medium size. It is covered with the skins of the karung lizard and they are dyed a bold Christmas red color. The dying process results in a pattern whereby the background is lightly lighter than the tiny scales. (This happens with the lighter colors and darker colored skins, such as black, do not result in this subtle two tone pattern.) There are three segments of the skins on the front and the back. There is thin red piping between the sections. There is ruching so that the middle panel has pleats and folds. The skins are glossy and have a great sheen. The frame is rounded and is covered with the karung skins. The clasp comes from behind and it is a bright gold metal. The accent piece on the clasp is tear drop shaped and has striations. In the middle there is a huge tear drop shaped red carnelian. It has dimension and "pops" out from its frame. The clasp makes a simple, smart and significant statement. To close the bag, you press down on the clasp. The clasp extends outwards and gives the bag dimension. There is an unusual very decorative chain that can be tucked inside using Leiber's internal mechanism. The links on the chain are unusual and jewelry quality. The drop is 17". The chain definitely adds to the beauty of the bag. The inside is lined with a bright red silk fabric and there is a zippered pocket. The Judith Leiber gold identification panel is affixed inside. It is also stamped "Made in Spain." There are faint indications of use and age. Nothing significant. The measurements are 9"w x 5 1/2H x 1"d. The bag is great condition. There are faint folds on the front probably from improper storage, mentioned for accuracy since they aren't a big deal. Please remember that the camera significantly magnifies everything. This bag can be dressed up or down, It is perfect fo that special lunch date or for having a martini with anyone! Red, Leiber, all is well.......Condition: Excellent - VINTAGE Condition
