This vintage Judith Leiber yellow snakeskin wallet is simultaneously a collector's objets d’art, and a highly functional everyday necessity. Folded into a small rectangle, one side unfolds to hold bills, while the other has a snap that opens to a pouch, to hold coins or other small objects. The center opening is designed to hold credit cards. It's crafted from genuine snakeskin in a gorgeous mustard hue, with hold details. A Holocaust survivor, Judith Leiber began designing handbags in her mind as a way to escape the horrors of the Swiss ghetto where the Nazis forced her to live with 60 people in a cellar. In 1963, she formally launched her namesake and her pieces have been fixtures on red carpets everywhere ever since. More than just functional objects, Judith Leiber's designs are true objets d’art:  the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art holds 80 pieces in their collection, and they are known to retail for upwards of $6,000. Measures 3" wide x 2.25" tall when fully folded, and the bill holder extends to about 8.25" long. Signed "Judith Leiber" on interior plaque.

Great vintage condition; it appears to have never been used, and the original packaging in the pocket is intact. With any questions about the specific condition or size, please email for additional photos or measurements, as all sales are final.
