Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil!

Decades recently discovered three Judith Leiber minaudieres in cute, cuddly animal shapes. The first, a tiny chimpanzee flashing a coquettish "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil" pose, opens to two gold leather compartments large enough to hold all your evening essentials. No less fetching is the graceful duck, seen below, ornamented with crystal feather details. Of course, if duck doesn't whet your fashion appetite, our final acquisition will have you wide-eyed with delight! It's an owl with an ovular, etched gold head and oversize beak/eye detail. How can you go wrong?
