    Judith Leiber Full Bead Purple & Green Crystal Eggplant Minaudiere Evening Bag
    Very Good Condition
    7" Width x 3" Height x 3" Depth
    Judith Leiber Minaudieres are a perfect way to add some flavor to any look. This piece is particularly delicious, done in the form of an eggplant. The base of the bag is adorned by rich purple crystals, with two shades of green crystals carefully placed to create a whimsical curving stem. The bag features a gold push closure and an optional gold strap that can be tucked inside. The interior of the bag is done in metallic gold leather. The bag comes with a gold coin purse, compact mirror and comb.

    This minaudiere is in Very Good Condition. There are several missing crystals throughout the bag. There is light scratching to the push closure, as well as to the internal hardware. There are some brown spots of discoloration to the interior near the curve of the top of the stem. The bag comes with a gold coin purse, compact mirror and comb. It also includes a Museum Archive Box, as well as a dustbag and Judith Leiber care card.
