DescriptionJudith Leiber Full Bead Red & Black Crystal Bulldog Minaudiere Evening Bag
Very Good to Excellent Condition
3" Width x 4" Height x 5" Depth
Judith Leiber Minaudieres are rife with meaning and emotion, and this adorable bulldog is no exception. The creature, on a gold base, rears back while seated, almost rolling over his twisted tail. His ears lay limp, and his eyes stare up at you, displaying his silver crystal chest in stark contrast to his black crystal body. He wears an attractive gold collar studded with round black onyx stones, the largest of which functions as a pushlock closure which opens to reveal a gold leather interior. His eyes are fashioned out of black onyx stones, as is the pushlock closure. This bag includes a comb.
This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There is one crystal missing near the rear shoulder strap window, and three missing crystals at the top of the head. There is a crystal missing on the right bottom. There is scratching to the hardware. This bag includes a Judith Leiber dustbag, and a comb.
Estimate: $1,500 - $2,500.
