DescriptionJudith Leiber Full Bead Green & Silver Crystal Buddha Minaudiere Evening Bag
Very Good to Excellent Condition
5" Width x 5.5" Height x 2.5" Depth
Eastern culture is a recurring theme in Judith Leiber's work, with many Chinese and Japanese motifs depicted in spectacular crystal minaudieres. Spectacles in their own right, Judith Leiber's minaudieres are highly collectible and sought after. This minaudiere is done in silver and multicolored crystals, fashioned into the shape of a seated Buddha. This bag is topped off with gorgeous amethyst accents, and a push clasp closure. The interior is done in gold metallic leather, featuring a gold tone shoulder chain that can be tucked in to wear this bag as a clutch.
This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There is some dulling to the crystals near the base, and very light scratching to the hardware. There are missing crystals at the front base, and by the left hand. The gold leather base is detaching. This bag includes a Museum Archive box, a Judith Leiber dustbag, and a coin purse.
