Is an amazing vintage Lalique France molded clear and frosted crystal large and heavy centerpiece flower vase. One of René Lalique most famous pieces, the "Bacchantes" vase, first created on July 22 1927 and continuously in production ever since.
Made by hand, it was originally created in opalescent, amber or smoked glass, and in 1947 a satin finish was added. A limited-edition black crystal version was produced in 2004. For its 80th anniversary in 2007, it was made in amber with each piece having its own unique shade. His design for Nina Riccis LAir du Temps led to it being named Bottle of the Century at the Fragrance Foundation Awards in 1999. Laliques signature style was influenced by the Art Nouveau movement, with its nymphs, flora and fauna, and celebration of the female form.
Lalique was born in Ay, a village in Frances Champagne region. He started as a jewellery designer making pieces for Cartier and Boucheron, but then experimented with glass. By 1909 he had opened a glassworks outside Paris and abandoned jewellery design.
In 1921, Lalique launched a second factory in Alsace as his work was in such demand. He exhibited at the Paris Exhibition of 1925, showing off everything from tableware to statuettes and perfume bottles.
The Bacchantes vase followed two years later and Lalique continued to exhibit widely. A new shop followed in Rue Royale, Paris, but in 1939 his Alsace factory was occupied by the Germans.
Lalique died aged 85 before it could reopen and the company was taken over by his son, Mark. In 2008, the company was bought by Lalique collector Silvio Denz, who has since arranged collaborations with the Iraqi-born architect Zaha Hadid among others.This piece is painstakingly hand-crafted in France. The graceful nature of clear crystal sets the stage to showcase the masterful craftsmanship and the intricate designs utilized by Rene Lalique.
