    Judith Leiber Full Bead Brown & Gray Rectangular Minaudiere Evening Bag
    Very Good to Excellent Condition
    6.5" Width x 3" Height x 1.5" Depth
    Geometry is a staple inspiration for Judith Leiber's minaudiere evening bags, inspiring shapes and patterns in nearly all of her handbags. This fun geometric pattern is done in black, gray, silver, and brown crystals that are arranged into hexagonal shapes that repeat throughout the bag. This smart pairing of colors creates a multidimensional effect and makes each color pop. The bag is accented with gold hardware including a pushlock closure, and and features an optional gold shoulder strap that can be worn or tucked away. The interior is done in metallic gold leather. The bag comes with a coin purse, mirror and comb.

    This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There are no missing crystals, and some dulling to the surface of a few of the crystals. There is light scratching to the hardware, as well as a small brown mark of discoloration to the interior leather. There is a large mark of residue on one side of the pushlock closure. This bag comes with a Museum Archive Box, dustbag, care card, and product registry. It also includes a coin purse, mirror and comb.
