    Judith Leiber Full Bead Black & Silver Crystal Egg Minaudiere Evening Bag
    Very Good to Excellent Condition
    6" Width x 4" Height x 3" Depth
    The Egg minaudiere is one of Judith Leibers cornerstone pieces, and an icon of the brand itself. The egg minaudiere, although popular, is also a signifier of the brand, and is instantly recognizable from across a room. This fabulous egg minaudiere is done in black and silver crystals, fashioned into a zig zag pattern that is the perfect bold accent for any eveningwear ensemble. Expertly finished with gold tone hardware and a black onyx push clasp closure, this minaudiere will never go out of style. The interior is done in gold metallic leather, and features a gold tone shoulder chain that can be tucked in to wear as a clutch.

    This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There is slight scratching to the hardware and there are one or two crystals missing around the closure, and two more missing on the body. There is a small spot of orange discoloration on one side of the interior leather. This bag includes a Judith Leiber Box.
