It may surprise fans of Judith Leiber to learn she isn't a jeweler.Most women who own one of her handbags consider them as precious as any jewel.Technically she may produce purses, but aesthetically Mrs. Leiber's pieces are often compared to the work of Peter Carl Faberge, and many are in museums, including the Metropolitan in New York and the Smithsonian in Washington.She has made inaugural ball bags for Barbara Bush, Nancy Reagan (who later turned down one of her signature cat purses, saying she hates cats)
