Description

This rare Judith Leiber evening bag is in fair vintage condition. The exterior features a beautiful black silk that is embellished with black swarovski crystals and a grey and white striped floral design with exquisite embroidery surrounding the entire piece. Parts of the grey and white striped silk embroidered flowers are frayed and worn out. Please refer to the last photo for a better idea about the wear on this piece. It is one of the earliest Leiber designs and is extremely rare. The top twist hardware is completely covered with black swarovski crystals that are in good condition. The interior is fully lined with black silk and holds 2 side slit pockets. The interior is in very good condition considering the age of this piece. There is a 2'' rectangle spot above one of the slit pockets where some kind of tag used to be. We estimate this piece is probably from sometime in the early to mid 1960's, when Leiber was just getting her start as an independent accessories designer. The wear on the exterior does not affect the overall magnificent design or use of this collector's piece. Purchase includes a dust cover and signature silver engraved pocket comb. Measurements: 9.5''x6.5''x2'' #bags184
