When I was a little girl, I loved going for rides on carousels. Amusement parks, zoos, and even the midway at the state fair… if there was a carousel there, I wanted to ride it. There was one particular carousel, however, that really sticks out in my mind. I can’t remember where it was, but it was probably the biggest carousel I had ever seen. Unlike some carousels, this one had different animals on it. There was a lion, a giraffe, a zebra, and a big green dragon. I wanted to ride the giraffe, but it was stationary. So I rode on the dragon instead, which moved up and down as the carousel spun around. There is just something so magical about carousels. Whenever I see one, I think back to those happier times when life seemed so much simpler. As you can probably imagine then, I was instantly intrigued when I stumbled upon the Judith Leiber Carousel Clutch!
What can I say about Judith Leiber? Her pieces look like they belong in museums. They truly are little works of art! I absolutely love the design of this clutch. The details are simply exquisite and the use of color is stunning. You really couldn’t ask for more. Although a bit impractical for everyday use, this piece would make a great show stopper for that extra special occasion. It would also make a great collector’s piece, as there are many Judith Leiber fans out there that simply love collecting and displaying her pieces.
