Oh the color of this bag! The lush dark forest green looks and feels incredibly soothing, like a walk in deep quiet woods. A regal Asian Elephant, adorned with his own fancy headpiece and a crown of matching green, forms the clasp of this unusual Judith Leiber beauty. Like all Leiber bags, no detail is spared - matching snakeskin accents a stripe along the top as well as the underside of the ellie head clasp.
Features a snakeskin strap on swivel hooks that tucks in neatly for use as a clutch. Roomy and pretty interior with one scalloped slip pocket and one zipper pocket. Bag body measures 11.5" wide at the base, approx. 8" high, and 2" deep with lots of room to expand. Strap has a 19" drop.
Karung leather by Judith Leiber, estimated 1980's. Excellent condition with only the tiniest scratch on the metal frame, no fading or damage to leather or fabric. 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 purchase.
Shipped with extra insurance and signature required.
Asian Elephants (Elephas maximus) have small low-set ears and only the males have tusks, while African Elephants (Loxodonta africana & Oxodonta cyclotis) have larger ears that sit higher on their head, and both males & females grow tusks. All elephants are highly endangered due the ivory trade, but governments around the world are working together in hope of saving this majestic animal.
