DescriptionJudith Leiber Full Bead Pink & Silver Crystal Sphinx Head Minaudiere Evening Bag
Very Good Condition
3.5" Width x 5" Height x 4" Depth
The Sphinx, once a noble and revered mythical creature, has found its way into the design of this stunning Judith Leiber bag. The creature, its human head severed, has taken the form of a beautiful woman draped with a pink and silver crystal floral headpiece, and wearing a pink mask across the top portion of her face. An all-knowing figure, she looks out from behind her innocent pink mask with crystal eyes that see straight forward, her golden hair pulled away from her face, two chalcedony earrings completing the frame. Atop her head rests an chalcedony topped push-lock closure, beyond which is a classic gold leather lined interior, which houses the chain shoulder-strap. This Sphinx comes with a dustbag, comb, mirror, and coin pouch.
This bag is in Very Good Condition. There are a few missing crystals near the closure, and some light surface scratching to the gold metal. This bag includes a dustbag, comb, mirror, coin purse, and a care card.
