    Judith Leiber Full Bead Black & White Crystal Penguin Minaudiere Evening Bag
    Very Good to Excellent Condition
    3" Width x 5" Height x 2.5" Depth
    Animal likenesses are one of Judith Leibers most notable creations. This sweet penguin is a perfect pairing of elegance and charm. Done in black and white crystals, he is accented with silver crystals that decorate the gold frame and create stylized feathers. The gold base of his feet include textured indentations that suggest the webbing, asserting Judith Leiber's phenomenal attention to details! This bag features a gold tone push clasp closure and two small black onyx stones for eyes. The interior is done in gold metallic leather, and features a gold tone shoulder chain that can be tucked in to wear this bag as a clutch. The minaudiere includes a coin purse, comb, and a mirror with its dustbag.

    This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There are a few black and white crystals missing, as well as some light scratching to the hardware. There are two small brown spots of discoloration to the interior leather. The bag includes a Judith Leiber dustbag, coin purse, comb, mirror with its dustbag, and a care card. There is also a mini dustbag for the accessories.
