    Judith Leiber Red Tweed & Black Patent Leather Top Handle Bag with Gold Hardware
    Good Condition
    12" Width x 10" Height x 3.5" Depth
    This Judith Leiber bag is an example of the playfulness and elegance of Judith Leiber designs. This bag is done in red tweed and features a black patent leather base compartment and trim. The bottom compartment has a small black patent flap that opens with a hidden gold tone magnetic snap closure and the interior is lined in black grosgrain. The main compartment to this bag opens with a gold tone frame clasp in the style of a kisslock closure. The interior is lined in black grosgrain and there is one main slip pocket and one zip pocket. This bag is extremely versatile in that the top handle can fold down into the bag, making it a perfect bag for both day and nighttime use. There is a detachable black patent leather shoulder strap that can be worn out or tucked into the bag.

    This bag is in Good Condition. The black patent leather is mildly sticky throughout and there is some scuffing to the leather under the base compartment flap. The gold tone hardware is scratched and tarnished. The base has a sticky residue. This bag comes with a Judith Leiber box.
