There is something about patent leather bags, especially those covered with genuine patent leather, that particularly appeals to me. I'm not sure why, perhaps it is because patent leather is not as serious as other leathers, or because, to me, it has a youthful vibe, or perhaps it is because of its undeniable shine. This patent bag by the Queen of bags, Judith Leiber, meets all of these characteristics. The bag is medium size and it is very rounded. It is covered with genuine patent leather that is a deep ebony black. The leather is ruched at the top resulting in great folds and pleats. This gives the bag depth and dimension as well as interest. It has a mirror like shine. The frame is magnificent. It is similar on both sides. It is curved and is a bright and shiny gold metal. It is chunky and thick. There are three large onyx stones on the front and two set in the back. They are set in thick gold bezels. Two are set vertically, with the front middle one set horizontally. The remainder of the frame is a pattern of rounded shiny gold metal decorative details. The closure comes from the back and it snaps closed with a click. A horizontal onyx stone is at the end of the clasp and it protrudes outwards giving the bag additional depth. The frame perfectly coordinates with the patent leather body. There is a gold serpentine chain with a drop of 20". The chain is jewelry quality. The chain can be tucked inside using Leiber's optional internal hardware. The bag can then be worn as a clutch. The inside is lined with a black silk like fabric. There are two open slip pockets. The gold identification panel stating "Judith Leiber" is affixed inside. The original care card is also included. The inside is very clean. The bag measures 8 1/2'w x 7"h x 2"w. The bag is in great condition. There is one spot that has to be looked for, to discover. It is on the back down towards the bottom. The picture amplifies it since the camera caught some glare which in reality is not there at all. Remember, the camera magnifies blemishes significantly, so that the spot appears much more obvious than it really is. Other than that, the bag is in fabulous condition and it still deserves an excellent vintage rating. This Leiber patent leather bag is timeless, versatile, and very appealing. It can be dressed up or down. The purse body is unassuming while its frame makes a big and bold statement. This is a perfect fit! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
