    Very Good Condition
    7" Width x 5" Height x 1.5" Depth
    This Judith Leiber minaudiere is beautiful and elegant. This bag is a nod to times past when hand fans were used during the warmer months. Minaudieres by Judith Leiber blend art and utility and her bags are featured in the permanent collections of prestigious institutions such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and The Houston Museum of Fine Arts. This fan shaped minaudiere features a graphic pairing of black, gold, & silver crystals arranged in a delicate pattern and accented with florentined gold hardware. This bag features a black onyx push clasp closure, a black rope handle with a tassel, and a gold tone shoulder chain that can be tucked in for use as a clutch. The interior is done in metallic gold leather and the bag also includes a gold coin purse, mirror, and comb.

    This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There are a few missing crystals throughout the piece and light scratching to the hardware. There is one small brown mark present on the interior leather. This bag includes a Judith Leiber dustbag,gold coin purse, mirror, and comb.
