DescriptionJudith Leiber Full Bead Red & Green Crystal Books Minaudiere Evening Bag
5.5" Width x 3" Height x 2.5" Depth
The Judith Leiber Books is one of the most stylish and easily worn shapes she has done. The simple rectangular shape, suspended from a removable red silk chord with tassels, hangs beautifully against the body. Against a gold ground, three books with pages topped in red, silver, and green crystals complete the stack. The end two books, featuring green and red topped pages exhibit one cover each, depicting red crystal hearts and green crystal circles on a silver base with a red border. What does the cover of the center book show? We will never know because all three are tethered together by a red crystal strap terminating in a silver crystal buckle. The spines of the books continue the pattern with more red crystal hearts on a ground of silver and green crystal. Inside, beyond a red glass push-lock clasp, lies a gold leather lined interior. These books come with their dustbag, coin pouch, mirror and comb.
