    Judith Leiber Full Bead Silver Crystal Floral Minaudiere Evening Bag
    Very Good Condition
    7" Width x 4" Height x 1.5" Depth
    Whimsically floral, this minaudiere evening bag brings subdued opulence to a look. Judith Leiber painstakingly crafts each minaudiere by hand with the finest Austrian crystals and semiprecious stones. This minaudiere is done with a background of silver crystals with delicately rendered leaves and vines, crafted from yellow and green crystals. The scene is completed with tiny blue crystals that signify blueberries on the branches. This bag is expertly finished with gold tone trim and a pushlock closure, with aventurine and quartz accents. The interior is done in metallic gold leather, and features a gold tone shoulder chain that can be tucked in to wear this bag as a clutch. This minaudiere comes with a gold comb, coin purse and compact mirror.

    This bag is in Very Good Condition. There are one or two crystals missing and there is some light surface scratching to the gold tone hardware as well as a few scuffed up spots throughout the gold trim. There is some discoloration surrounding a few of the crystals in the top left hand corner of the bag. This minaudiere comes with a gold comb, coin purse and compact mirror. This bag also includes a Judith Leiber box, dustbag, care card, and mini dustbag for the mirror.
