Doth my eyes deceive me? Could this be, could this really be the most beautiful Judith Leiber creation yet? Yes, I do believe so.

When it comes to Judith Leiber, all handbag lovers know what to expect: exquisite, luxurious and head-turning pieces. While this is what I certainly expect, there is a good chance Judith outdid herself this time. I came across this bag a little while ago and have spent more than a bit of time drooling over it. Everything you’ve come to expect from a Judith Leiber creation is here – and then some. In fact, I am almost a bit concerned that the pictures we have can’t even do the bag the kind of true justice it deserves, but I’m sure going to try!

The Judith Leiber Birdcage Fine-Crystal Bag is an ornate showcase of everything the perfect evening bag can be when the proper attention to detail is applied. This multicolored hand-placed crystal-embellished birdcage would be the absolute quintessential evening bag – the pinnacle of evening bags. It is hand-painted, boasts a gold-tone chain-link handle that can be used or tucked inside the bag so that it is completely carried like a clutch. The gold-tone push-clasp has a ring which you can hold and is completely lined with gold leather. How glamorous. We’ve seen so many other Judith Leiber handbags that all seemed to be the most gorgeous around, but this one, it takes the cake. I admire the shape, detailing and handle option. Not many other JL bags have this option and with this particular design, it is a perfect addition. Yes, it is pricey, and I would have to save up quite a bit for it, but man-oh-man do I love being able to stare at it! Buy through Net-a-Porter for $5595.

    lol haha i can imagine myself carrying this & how ppl would stare at me in the weirdest way ever =))) (fb)

  • Rosanna

    Well, it’s definitely creative! This is cute for home decorating, but not so much for a bag! (fb)

  • Mai Thao

    that is so cool but I would not carry it… haha (fb)

  • Pookie F. – (Stacy)

    I would be too scared to use it…due to it’s hefty price tag. It would sit safely inside my glass case where I could just stare at it for hours on end. (I would have to handle it with gloved hands. lol) (fb)

  • CC

    Looks too old lady. Id never carry it (fb)

  • robyn

    Meh, not for me!! (fb)

  • Lydia

    That is not a bag-it is a work of art. It belongs in a museum so people can drool at its beauty. Or, better yet, on my arm so they can glare with envy. LOL (fb)

  • denim53

    I would never have an occasion to carry such a bag.

  • Tamee

    I would love to collect her bags just to have as art in my home! So beautiful! (fb)

  • CahtyFitz

    It’s a work of art that I could never have situation to ever use. (fb)

  • Eliana

    I will have to agree with denim53, I would never have an occasion to carry such a bag, though I think it’s beautiful… (fb)

  • joana

    very fab! (fb)

  • Shine

    its beautiful but as for me i dont like it.. for one reason is that my lifestyle i dont go for formal occassions and there would never be an oppurtunity for me to flaunt this, second i would rather invest on other bags with the price like that taht will be more functional for me. (fb)

  • Celeste

    Wow – that is very pretty. Not too useful (for me anyway) as a bag but more like an art piece. If I can’t have a Faberge egg, I could try this! (fb)

  • mochababe73

    Not really feeling this bag. I would rather buy the cupcake one. (fb)

  • Karen

    I love the cupcake one too…… the snake ones are my fave though! But anything she does is always amazing. I wouldn’t take it back to the store:)

  • Denise

    wow, so pretty!!! (fb)

  • Cate

    Judith Leiber’s work always impresses me. The attention to detail is phenomenal! This one particularly catches my eye because of the muted colors, which would work well, I think, with some bold, jewel-toned dress. (fb)

  • mika

    i have nothing good to comment about it.. (fb)

  • Pat

    I think it’s really pretty, but I wouldn’t get any use out of it as a handbag. Maybe for home decor on a table or something. Lol. (fb)

  • Lilly P.

    It is beautiful to look at but not to carry around =D (fb)

  • Natalie

  • Camille

    Dainty and elegant. pretty, pretty, pretty! I love it. (fb)

  • ad

    wow that would look amazing in my mum’s display cabinet along with her other swarovski ornaments. too bad it costs over 5thousand bucks.. (fb)

  • mary s

    what is the point of these non-useable handbag?? why not just make an art piece and call it a day? (fb)

  • covertanjou

    I have never understood carrying a purse shaped like a birdcage, cupcake, etc. I could never see myself carrying a purse like this. And the price! (fb)

  • Leona

    Wow, it’s beautiful! If only it was miniaturised & used as a pendant/locket. I would buy that. (fb)

  • BLynnT

    I can’t ever imagine using it myself, but it is certainly an exquisite piece. (fb)

  • Sandy Flores

    It’s a work of art. nice! (fb)

  • abitnerdy

    oh my, this belongs in a museum and when worn out handle with much care please nonetheless its stunning (fb)

  • Stacee

    I love it but – goldtone? Gold tone for that price? It should be the real deal.

  • Dawne Strehl

    La cage aux fab !!!! ‘(fb)’

    Stunning! It’s amazingly detailed. I can see it being carried by a celeb on the red carpet. (fb)

  • Connie

    Pretty but impractical. (fb)

  • Karin bag4bag

    I really like Judith Leiber bags b/c they are so ornate and magical. I actually like some of her other designs better than this one. This shape is a little too awkward to carry. Give me a rabbit or peacock anytime ! (fb)

  • Nikki

    I can only imagine it being seen on a red carpet event. (fb)

  • Tanyus

    very gorgeous, but not flexible to use in any events! (fb)

  • Lizzie

    This is beautiful. A work of art. But i would never actually carry it

  • Shelly

    that is beyond beautiful (fb)

  • marian T

    work of art! (fb)

  • ceejay

    It’s really pretty (fb)

  • stefaniewhite

    This dilly is so dramatic, but it’s not my cup of tea…

  • Jocelyn

    It’s very detailed but looks more like a decoration than bag. (fb)
