I have sold this style of Leiber bag many times. They have all been made of python skins and came in different sizes. However, at first glance, I knew there was something different and unique about this one but I didn't know what it was. Besides the fact that it is a very early Leiber, it is cleverly made from different panels of different colored python skins. These panels also are taken from different parts of the snake so that besides the color, the size of the scales also differ. Usually this bag is mono colored with skins dyed the same color. There is very little variation. This is what makes this bag a little special. It is hobo shaped and is small in size. It is very rounded. There are 6 panels on the front and the back. Each panel is different. The color ranges from a buttery light yellow to a deep brown charcoal with hues in between. The scales range from very tiny to larger scales that are horizontal. The skins being very old still are soft. There is a very dull shine, unlike most of the other bags of the style. There are 2 extraordinary chains. One is silver tone metal, the other gold tone metal. The chains are serpentine but flat. They add interest to the bag. The drop is 16". The bag closes with a small gold tone fluted push down tab. The inside is lined with both the reptile skins (about 1/3 down from the top) and a black leather. There is a zippered pocket and the leather label "Neiman Marcus by Judith Leiber" is affixed along with a gold "Judith Leiber" identification panel. There is a JL comb, a care card and an unused mirror wrapped in its original cellophane envelope. ( The mirror predates the gold metal mirrors that came later). The inside is in great condition. The measurements are 9"w x 7"h x 1+"d. The bag is in great condition, especially considering its age. The bag is a bit more flexible that those that were created later. It has a great look and is timeless. So much to carefully look at and marvel at how it all comes together to create such an interesting skin bag. Great! Condition: Excellent- VINTAGE Condition
