DescriptionJudith Leiber Full Bead Multicolor Crystal Duck Minaudiere Evening Bag
Very Good Condition
6" Width x 3.5" Height x 4" Depth
Well known for her adorable animal minaudiere likenesses, making them her most collectible and artistically novel works of art. With this Duck minaudiere, as with many of her figural pieces, Judith Leiber takes a traditional animal and coats him with non-traditional colors! In a beautiful combination of black, red, green gold, blue, black, and silver crystals, all arranged sectionals, this mallard channels a style reminiscent of Mondrian. The bag is accented with gold tone hardware and features a press release closure. The interior is done in gold metallic leather. The bag comes with a gold tone compact mirror, comb and coin purse.
This bag is in Very Good Condition. It is missing a few crystals along the base and there is minimal scratching to the gold hardware. A few blue stones are dulling from glue runoff. There are several significant brown stains throughout the interior leather from glue. The bag comes with a Judith Leiber box, dustbag, coin purse, mirror, comb, and care card.
