    Judith Leiber Full Bead Red & Green Crystal Watermelon Minaudiere Evening Bag
    Very Good to Excellent Condition
    5.5" Width x 3" Height x 2" Depth
    Minaudieres by Judith Leiber are a rare blend of art and utility. After establishing her own brand in 1963, Judith Leiber began crafting ingenious shapes that are brilliantly and meticulously beaded with Austrian crystals. This particular minaudiere is simply good enough to eat-fashioned into the shape of a watermelon! The bag has a red crystal center with tiny pieces of black onyx resembling the seeds. The outer area is done in silver and green crystals and the base of the bag is done in gold. This minaudiere features a pushlock closure, accented with a black onyx bead. The interior is done in metallic gold leather, and includes a gold coin comb, and a mirror.

    This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There is one green crystal missing, two crystals are chipped, and light scratching throughout the hardware. The bag includes a purse, mirror, comb and care card. The bag comes with a Judith Leiber dustbag and box.
