Lalique Crystal Two Fish Sculpture - Deux Poissons. This beautiful LALIQUE sculpture depicts two entwined Koi fish on a round base.It is molded in clear and frosted lead crystal. Water and fish have always been a great source of inspiration for Lalique. This stunning piece conveys the result. Seeing the light coming through the crystal gives a shimmer to the scales of the fish making them seem almost alive as if they were leaping out of the water. S why I photographed the sculpture near a window with natural daylight back lighting, so you could see how it absorbs and transmits light. The piece is in flawless condition with no chips, cracks, scuffs, bruises, or other damage.
The bottom isn't all scratched up like some that you see here. The Lalique France signature is etched on the side near the bottom. When Rene Lalique died in 1945, his son Marc took over the business. One of the first things Marc did was change the formula from demi crystal with 12% lead oxide to full lead crystal with 24% lead oxide.
This produced much heavier pieces, even from the same molds. It also yielded a much brighter and more transparent crystal.
This sculpture was designed by Marc Lalique in 1953. It is a substantial piece weighing 17 pounds 12 ounces (8.1 kg). And measures 11 ¼ inches high and 10 ¼ inches wide. The clear crystal base is 5 1/2 inches diameter (H 28,6 cm x L 26,1 cm x W 13,9 cm).
Hand crafted in Lalique's Alsace France workshops. The price for contemporary Lalique glass has nearly doubled over the past years which makes their crystal solid investment that can be displayed and enjoyed. This sculpture has been very popular and thus remains Lalique? One of the great things about owning beautiful Lalique collectible is that lead crystal doesn?
