A quietly roaring statement, this ultra-fabulous day bag features a charismatic tiger head clasp with garnet cabochon eyes and wavy stripes of cream snakeskin set into gold metal. To follow on the theme, Ms. Leiber topped her push button clasp with a tiger's eye stone. Angled pleats on the bag body draw the eye up to the tiger accent with a gleaming textured gold arc so no one misses the best part! So beautiful, so unusual, so spacious. An investment piece that will last you for many decades to come. With quality, cache, and timeless style, a vintage Leiber bag is a truly sustainable buy.
Features a snakeskin strap on swivel hooks that tucks in neatly for use as a clutch. Roomy interior with one slip pocket and one zipper pocket. A flat base keeps her standing upright (no feet, however so don't set her down on a surface that's not dry). Bag body measures 11" wide at the base, 8" high, and 4" deep with room to expand. Strap has a 20" drop. Leibers are made to retain their elegant look even when full, hence the pleats and lovely rounded top. 1980's Karung leather and semi-precious stones by Judith Leiber. Excellent condition.
