    I thought that this will perhaps interest some other collectors too.
    I arranged this article for my privat documentation.

    NEIMAN MARCUS PRESENTS
    JUDITH LEIBER
    PURSE / PILL BOX

    Pictured here is a Brand New Neiman Marcus designer commissioned gift adornment. Neiman Marcus commissions a well-known Designer, to come up with a wonderful piece of art, to adorn the gift wrapping, of their ever so famous gifts from the Neiman Marcus Book.

    Neiman Marcus has been doing this since 1997, when the first one was Emelia Castilla, a well known artist with a Southwest flair. There was also Rebecca Collins, Stephen Dweck, John Hardy and the recently retired miniature picture frame clips by Jay Strongwater.

    The purse pictured here is a brand new piece by the Designer Judith Leiber. This beautiful little purse or pillbox, actually opens to hold pills or small change/coins. It has pink and blue bears on the front and signed on the back Judith Leiber for Neiman Marcus, this purse is for 2004 Gift Wrap. There is also a purse with six butterflies in front and one in alligator style.

    It measures 2 3/8″ X 2 1/2″.
    It opens and measures 2 3/8″ X 4″.

    Sorry – unfortunately I could not copy the photos to this pages.

    Liliane,

    Thanks so much for your informative post. I looked these up on Ebay, and all I can say is “WOW!” If Judith Leiber is going to be designing solids for EL, this is very exciting, as the purses are wonderful! Love the detail! Did you see the Toucan charm? Liked this one, too. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    Thanks, Liliane! I noticed these new purse boxes the other day at Neiman's. I think I am going to have to have something gift wrapped for myself just so I can get one. They are adorable!

    What is a ìToucan charmî Martha???

    Debbie and Martha – this year probably nobody of us knows jet, which solids at Christmas appear.
    Unfortunately also probably nobody knows with security, whether JUDITH LEIBER really creates solids for EstÈe Lauder.

    Yes Janette – I think also, they are adorable! I present them together with solids like the silvertone ìVictorian Style Bootî, ìStraw Hatî, ìPrecious Pouchî and so on.
    Also all GWP (Gift With Purchase) of JAY STRONGWATER, the butterfly keychain, the small butterfly mirror, as well as several very small frams, are realy all beautiful.

    Hi Matha !
    The toucan looks very beautiful and detailed. So many colours <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> .
    It would be nice to see a toucan as a solid perfume <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ /> .

    Greetings !

    Sorry to have to write this but a friend has just brought back the three Judith Leiber pill boxes. As they are in the shape of handbags she bought them for her daughter. I honestly think they are cheap and tacky looking. Not, in my personal opinion, indicative of her beautiful creative work!

    Shoot me down in flames, but I have been an admirer of her creations for a long while, and am so very disappointed in these offerings!

    I have to agree, Jackie. I bought one on e-bay and am really disappointed. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ /> In fact, I just put it back in the box. It is NOT J.L. quality…IMHO.

    Hi Ann, They actually paid for these items (only due to the fact that their daughter is handbag mad)! Think they were about $7 – $10 each (not sure). <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />
    Didn't want to purchase anything else.

    Meanwhile another question? Don't you have to pay for the gift wrapping? Do you also have to spend a certain amount of money to acquire these?

    I rest my case (or my handbag)! Whichever! <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />

    Either way Ann, I really was so very disappointed that with her reputation and creativity, the name J.L is attributed to these!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    P.S. Glad you didn't shoot me in the proverbial! Sorry you were also disappointed Mimi. Nice to hear I am not on my own despite your disappointment………….. <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ />

    The JL pill boxes are put on the bow ( the ring) when you purchase at NM.
    Not sure about any certain amount you have to spend.

    I always have my stuff (solids) giftwrapped and NM charges my credit card( $7.00 for gift wrap) and then takes it off so there is no charge to me.

    Last year they used Jay Strongwater MIni frames. ( $6.50 ).

    They are very nice IF you don't have to pay for them.

    Hi Mimi

    Sorry you are disappointed <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

    I kind of like them since they are free. The real Judith Lieber purses are very expensive, so it is a good way to have one, for not much dollars.

    Sorry we won't see you in Las Vegas!!!

    Have a nice evening!

    Liliane
