DescriptionJudith Leiber Full Bead Red & Silver Crystal Rabbit Minaudiere Evening Bag
Very Good to Excellent Condition
4" Height x 6" Width x 2.5" Depth
This Judith Leiber Bunny, as with many of her figural pieces, takes a traditional animal and coats him with non-traditional colors. The vibrant red crystals that adorn this fellow are a perfect example of this. They offset beautifully the gold metal ground as well as the silver crystal feet, tail, ears and face, and compliment the striking garnet eyes. He opens to display a gold leather lined interior which stores the chain strap when not in use. This rabbit comes with his box and dustbag.
This rabbit is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. He is missing a few silver crystals just under the pushlock closure, and shows some light surface scratching to the exposed metal. There are a few loose crystals throughout.
