Vintage Judith Leiber Crystal Life Saver Minaudiere


Known for her tongue-in-cheek design perspective, Judith Leiber holds a special place in the history of modern accessory design. Though some may choose the word kitsch to describe Leiber’s aesthetic, her designs are undoubtedly expressive and find the exciting in the mundane.

This vintage, cylindrical, pillbox minaudiere is crafted from hundreds of hand-set clear and colored crystals of candy-apple red, peridot, and deep orange encircling the minaudiere to resemble Life Saver candies. This dainty yet vivid minaudiere certainly has a youthful vibe and can be used to hold a variety of small treats or trinkets and is highly collectible.

Height: 3 inches

Depth. .75 inches

The interior of the box is gold tone metal, and fastens at the top with a push-lock closure. In good condition, this minaudiere has some wear to the interior of the lid (as seen in the last image). It comes with the original box. 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.
