Only Judith Leiber would design a clutch in the likeness of a Dachshund.

You know what? I almost always am team Judith Leiber. I can find the fun and enjoyment each bag can bring to a different wearer or carrier. But the only person I can imagine loving the Judith Leiber Dachshund Crystal Clutch is a Dachshund lover. Don’t get me wrong, there is a large group of people who love these cute dogs. But is anyone in this group also a handbag aficionado that wants to spend almost $6,000 on crystal clutch. I can’t answer that. And that is why this clutch is a bit harder for me to stomach.

Many Leiber pieces are art pieces that I imagine being put on display in a cabinet behind glass doors in your home. And if you love Dachshunds, that may be exactly what you would do with this clutch. I have to hand it to Judith Leiber, the clutch closely resembles the adorable dog breed that has been known as the “weiner dog”. Hey, weiner dogs even make a cute Leiber clutch. But is the appeal there to sell this bag?

This is not the Leiber piece for me, not by a long mile, but it is attention-grabbing enough to cover. Buy through Net A Porter for $5,795.

    That is, um, one ugly looking clutch. One that I think would look even worse in a glass cabinet than in the hand (I envision this dog being surrounded by several Swarovski animals). I’m having a hard time appreciating the ‘art’ of this kitch dog-thing.

    i love that breed but not loving the bag…

  • If Judith Leiber would make an English Bulldog clutch, it would make my freakin’ life.

  • reese

    As an avid dachshund fan, i’m not liking this very much. I have liked the other crystal bags, just not this one.

  • highmaintenance

    Lord have mercy! I wouldn’t carry a purse in the shape of my beloved shar-pei neither.

  • louch

    Awww, it’s very cute. But these dogs can be pretty nasty!! Maybe it bites.

  • Jacqueline Suzanne

    I do not like animals or people on my bags/clothes!!

  • Shannon

    So cute! I have a doxie, but I would never spend $6,000 on a clutch.

  • Karin bag4bag

    I do love Judith Leiber clutches, but I wouldn’t buy a dachshund (even if I had that sort of budget). I really love her miniaudieres.

  • Mochababe73

    It’s a work of art. I am not a dog lover, but I still want that cupcake bag.

  • coco13

    Dear God, no.

  • 19yearslater

    I’m drawing the line at loving JL with this clutch. It reminds me more of hunting than fashion. Great for someone who loves dachshunds. The rest of us? Not so much.

  • Davina

    I saw this bag in person and it was adorable! If if had the $$$ I would absolutely buy one!

  • Nee

    oy, thats ugly!

  • sara

    i think it’s hideous. my mum is obsessed w/dachshunds (she owns 6) and i won’t show this to her because she’d probably sell her house to buy this stupid clutch

  • Prima Bags

    You guys might want to check out our minaudiere bags at and I’m sure you’d find them just as nice but at a fraction of the cost of these other crystal bags.

  • Brandy

    Now am I wrong or did she also create a similar clutch but a zebra?

  • Jelita78
