Here's The Scoop
Born in the tumultuous time of the World War decades, Hungarian born Judith Leiber achieved astonishing accomplishments for her work in handbag and leather good design. Leiber’s craft focused on one-of-a-kind imagination and deft attention to detail. Of her work, the New York Times refers to her creations as “objects d’art”. Done in a seductive red snakeskin, this bag is molded to a petite feminine shape. The top of the bag is accented with a textured gold tone frame with two spherical glass insets at the center giving the impression of a crown atop the bag. Nominally a clutch, this bag also contains a red woven strap that can be removed to wear as a clutch.
Leiber’s bags are acclaimed for their quality and high fashion status. Her bags have been worn by leading ladies such a Jackie O, Grace Kelly, and Marilyn Monroe. Her collections are housed in notable museums worldwide.
