DescriptionJudith Leiber Full Bead Brown & Tan Crystal Jaguar Minaudiere Evening Bag
3" Width x 2.25" Height x 6.5" Depth
This exquisitely rendered Jaguar represents the triumph that is Leiber's legacy. His intricate and detailed beading, done in brown, tan and black crystals, creates a vision so striking and adorable that it could only possibly come from Leiber. A small crystal-covered push-lock closure opens the gold-based critter to reveal a gold leather interior, where the chain shoulder strap can rest when not in use. This cat comes with his box and dustbag.
This bag is in Fair Condition. While he does not appear to be missing any crystals, the push-lock closure is missing its spring and no longer holds the bag closed. The lock itself actually slides out of its slot when the bag is open, though stays in place when the bag is closed.
