Hungarian couture handbag designer Judith Leiber is best known for her signature crystal covered minaudieres, small ornamental cases, often in the shapes of animals or fruits. Her purses are so great that some pieces are even included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Smithsonian!
Needless to say, Judith Leiber's crystal covered evening bags are considered to be the best couture bags ever, and below you will see why:
15. Windflower Bag
Price: $4,595 at Judithleiber
This is a crystal bag that is really unique. It has sculpted petals and gold accent that is in the center. To the side, there is a push down snap so that you can close it. This will fit in with many of your outfits and will give it a unique look as you are carrying it around.
14. Scarlet Bag
Price: $5,695 at Judithleiber
I found this one really unique as it is in the parrot shape. It has wonderfully sculpted tail and wing feathers. It also includes onyx eyes. On the top, it is a push down closure. It has been beaded by hand out of multicolored Austrian Crystal.
13. Maharaja Bag
Price: $5,995 at Judithleiber
This brightly colored elephant is a must have as it has ornate costuming details, sculpted ears, tusks, feet and trunk. It also includes onyx eyes. It includes a tuck away chain. I absolutely adore elephants, so of course I liked this. I do not think it could have been made any better than it has been.
12. Ganesh Bag
Price: $5,595 at Judithleiber
For those of you that want something that is exquisitely crafted, I know you will like this. It has been fully beaded with Austrian crystal. It has been accented by black onyx and carnelian. It will be beautifully boxed with a signature bag.
11. Rose Bag
Price: $3,575 at Judithleiber
If you absolutely enjoy roses, then this would go great with your outfits. In fact, I have an outfit that has roses on it and found this bag went perfect. It has bottom leaf detailing and sculpted petals. For the closure, it is a push down snap. Many complain about the snaps being hard to open and close on some handbags, but this is not the case with this one.
