DescriptionJudith Leiber Full Bead Chalk Crystal Gift Box Minaudiere Evening Bag
Very Good Condition
6" Width x 6" Height by 4.5" Depth
Classic Leiber ! Minaudieres by Judith Leiber are a rare blend of art and utility. After establishing her own brand in 1963, Judith Leiber began crafting ingenious shapes that are brilliantly and meticulously beaded with Austrian crystals. Testament to the flawless handcraftsmanship and creativity of these minaudieres, they are now featured in the permanent collections of prestigious institutions such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and The Houston Museum of Fine Arts. This small Gift Box is covered in opaque, "chalk crystal," a stunning combination with its delicate gold borders, bow clasp, and arched handle. The golden fabric interior houses a small, oval mirror, as well as a compartment holding a white leather coin purse. Original care instructions included. This bag is in very good condition, with only a single crystal missing.
