    Judith Leiber Full Bead Multicolor Crystal Moth Minaudiere Evening Bag
    Very Good to Excellent Condition
    5.5" Width x 3" Height x 1" Depth
    Inspired by the majestic and elusive Cecropia moth, this Judith Leiber minaudiere adds a bit of mystery to a look, in an opulent and luxurious style. Taking flight with this bag places one at the center of attention at any evening event. Done in incredible red, gold, yellow, blue, black, and silver crystals, this bag is a magnificent display of colors, woven seamlessly into evocative patterns on the wings. This bag is trimmed in gold tone hardware, and features a lever clasp closure with garnets at the head of the antenna, and amethysts above the head. The interior is done in gold metallic leather, featuring a gold tone shoulder chain that can be tucked in to wear this bag as a clutch.

    This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There are a few crystals missing from around the antennae of the moth. There is light scratching to the hardware throughout, and a small spot of brown discoloration to the interior leather.
