    Judith Leiber Full Bead Red & Silver Crystal Ram Minuadiere Evening Bag
    Very Good to Excellent Condition
    5" Width x 3" Height x 5.5" Depth
    Simply stunning, this minaudiere is sure to turn heads and attract envy. Done in the shape of a ram's head, this piece appears quite distinguished with red and silver crystals arranged in a striking stripe and zig zag formation. This bag features gold tone trim, one black onyx stone on the forehead, and two garnet stones placed to resemble the eyes. This minaudiere is finished with a push clasp closure and gold detailing for the nose and mouth. 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 includes a gold comb, coin purse and compact mirror.

    This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There are a few crystals missing from the back of the ram's head, and some light scratching throughout the gold tone hardware. There is a small spot of brown discoloration to the interior leather. This bag comes with a Judith Leiber dustbag, as well as a gold compact mirror, comb, coin purse and care card.
