Vintage Judith Leiber Red Snake Skin Clutch Bag


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. Being the first woman inducted into the Hungarian Handbag Guild, 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 form a supple rounded body. 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 gold snake chain that can be unfolded to add a strap. Leiber’s bags are acclaimed for their quality and high fashion status. Her bags have been worn by various first ladies such as Mamie Eisenhower and Hillary Clinton, and also grace the collections of notable museums worldwide. Measurements; Strap drop: 18 inches Height: 4 inches Length: 8 inches Depth: 4 inches On the gold frame, the bag fastens with a kiss-lock closure at the top. The interior is lined in a red satin with a single zip pocket on the side wall and the Judith Leiber plaque affixed. It is in very good condition with only a few light surfaces scratches to the hardware. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
