    Lois Aldrin's Kathrine Baumann Evening Bag Depicting Buzz Aldrin and the American Flag on the Moon, Originally from Her Personal Collection. A full-beaded 6" x 5" x 1.75" bag with red, silver, blue, and gold crystals in the Judith Lieber style. Goldtone hardware with optional shoulder strap that can be tucked in and a pushlock closure. This was carried by Lois to at least one of the 2001 Inauguration parties as mentioned in an article from the New York Times: "'It's by Kathryn Bauman, who's the new Judith Leiber,'' Lois Aldrin said of her evening bag at a thronged General Motors party Thursday night at the Kennedy Center, in honor of the new White House chief of staff, Andrew H. Card Jr. Her husband, Buzz Aldrin, the second man on the moon, wore a dinner jacket and a number of ribbons and decorations. Mrs. Aldrin had a decollete gown and a purse ornamented with her husband in rhinestones, planting Old Glory on a cold white rock somewhere along the Beltway." Condition is only fair with one broken hinge and wear both outside and in. Still, it displays well and is certainly unique. A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany this lot.
