    Kathrine Baumann Limited Edition Full Bead Red & White Crystal Campbell's Soup Can Minaudiere Evening Bag , 16/2500
    Excellent Condition
    3" Width x 3.5" Height x 3" Depth
    Whimsical bag designer Kathrine Baumann has been referred to as the Andy Warhol of handbags and this minaudiere certainly speaks to that point. This bag is a beaded version of a Campbell's tomato soup can which of course was one of Andy Warhol's first famous painting subjects. Done in red, white, silver, gold, and black beads this minaudiere is accented with gold hardware. This bag features a gold shoulder strap which can be tucked into the interior for use as a clutch and a crystal press release closure. The interior is done in gold leather with a mirror at the top of the can opening.

    This bag is in Excellent Condition. There is very faint wear to the gold hardware near the press lock closure. This bag comes with extra crystals should they need to be replaced and a dustbag.
