DescriptionJudith Leiber Half Bead Silver & Black Crystal Monkey Minaudiere Evening Bag
4" Width x 5" Height x 3" Depth
The eerie blank stare of this monkey, with his thin pursed lips, and wide round black glass eyes, belies the fun and glittery face behind such a serious gaze. On a gold metal ground are placed silver and black crystals, producing an almost King Tut-like image across the face of this creature. Turn him over and you will find a dazzling array of black and silver crystals dancing across the back of his head. The gold push-lock closure opens to reveal a gold leather lined interior which holds the chain strap. This monkey comes with a dustbag.
This bag is in Excellent Condition, and appears to be missing no crystals, and yellowing to the silver crystals on the top right corner. There is light surface scratching to the gold metal.
