DescriptionJudith Leiber Full Bead Red & Gold Crystal Foo Dog Minaudiere Evening Bag
Very Good Condition
6" Width x 3.5" Height x 4" Depth
Eastern culture is a consistent influence on Judith Leiber minaudieres. From China, to Japan, and to India, Judith Leiber takes us on a global adventure, bringing us small pieces of each place in opulent crystal minaudieres. This bag is done in red, purple, green, yellow, and gold crystals, shaped into a curled Foo Dog, famous for their appearances on Chinese temples and ancient buildings. Usually depicted guarding the wealth of the Emperor, this Foo Dog has his own treasures to guard inside. This minaudiere is accented with a gold tone push clasp closure, and black onyx stones, fashioned into eyes. The closure opens to reveal a gold metallic leather interior with one gold tone shoulder chain that can be tucked in to wear this bag as a clutch.
This bag is in Very Good Condition. There is very light scratching to the hardware, and the frame does not seal when locked closed. There is one green crystal missing on the rear exterior. This bag includes a Judith Leiber dustbag.
