    Judith Leiber Half Bead Gold & Silver Crystal Lion Minaudiere Evening Bag
    Good Condition
    5" Width x 3.5" Height x 2" Depth
    This Judith Leiber bag is subtle and elegant. Regal and poised, this lion minaudiere adds something to the phrase "I am woman hear me roar!" This understated piece adds something to any evening ensemble, the frame is done in a gold base and it is covered with silver crystals. Beneath the lion the crystals are arranged around a delicate chainlink pattern. The piece is accented with a push slide closure that features a silver crystal at its center. To add to the creature's strong presence, two light green stones serve as his eyes, which almost seem to glow amidst the gold. The interior is done in metallic gold leather. Beyond the push-lock closure is a gold leather interior complete with the chain shoulder-strap.

    This bag is in Good Condition. There are crystals missing throughout the clutch and there is visible darkening to certain areas where those crystals used to be. There is light scratching to the hardware throughout. There is some discoloration to the interior hardware. This clutch comes with a Judith Leiber dustbag and box.
