    Judith Leiber Full Bead Silver & Black Crystal Humpty Dumpty Minaudiere Evening Bag
    Very Good to Excellent Condition
    3.5" Width x 5" Height x 4" Depth
    A classic children's rhyme, interpreted as an opulent evening accessory, this Humpty Dumpty minaudiere exhibits the pure whimsy of Judith Leiber's most popular designs. This bag is done in silver, white, red, green, and black crystals, featuring silver tone hardware, and a pushlock closure cleverly disguised as his bowtie. The interior is done in metallic silver leather, featuring one silver tone shoulder chain that can be tucked in to wear the bag as a clutch. This bag includes a coin purse, comb, and a mirror.

    This bag is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. There are a few crystals missing in places, and some light scratching to the hardware. There is some staining to the white crystals. This bag includes a Judith Leiber dustbag, coin purse, comb, mirror, and a small dustbag.
