    Looking for a bit of luck? Give this fabulous Leiber a try! All Minaudieres by Judith Leiber are a rare blend of art and utility, an example of flawless handcraftsmanship and creativity and this particular piece is the perfect example Judith Leiber's ability to transform the most ordinary form into an awe inspiring accessory. Crafted in the shape of an egg, this piece is covered with a base of silver crystals and accented with gold and green crystals, tailored to resemble shamrocks. The green and gold interplay over the silver gives the egg a glowing appearance. The bag features a push closure with a matching aventurine quartz accent, as well as an optional gold shoulder strap that can be tucked in. The interior is done in gold metallic leather. The bag comes with a gold coin purse, compact mirror and comb.

    This bag is in Very Good Condition. There are several missing crystals throughout the exterior of the egg, especially near the middle of the egg near the closure. There is some scratching to the external hardware and the interior contains a few brown marks of discoloration, particularly along the inside rim. This bag comes with a gold coin purse, compact mirror and comb, along with a Judith Leiber care card. The bag also comes with a Judith Leiber box and mini dustbag for the compact mirror.
