JUDITH LEIBER Plum Snakeskin Handbag. Yellow Gold Hardware with Double Press-Down Clasp. complete with original Change purse.
Judith Leiber made her mark as the most Prestigious Handbag Designer in the United States. She always used the very finest of leather & materials and combined the fabrications with accents made like fine jewelry. Her art of handbags became JEWELRY in its most artistic incarnation LEIBER became one of the most famous names in Art-To-Wear. She was inspired by the jewelry of Van Cleef and Arpels, Boucheron, Harry Winston and many others. Her original Minaudiere was created from a manufacturing mistake. But, great design often evolves from the strangest of seeds. People as renowned as Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Barbara Bush, Hillary Clinton and Diana Vreeland flaunted their style and their status by toting the magnificently made LEIBERs. These spectacular collectibles that begain in the 1960's have been auctioned by Houses as famous as Sotheby's & Christies & have sold at phenomenally high prices.

Signature plaquette is inside. Measures 10" Wide x 7" High x 4" Deep - Very pouchy and capacious. Yellow gold soft and silky herringbone chain shoulder strap with a 13 1/2" drop.
