This is a big, bold, and beautiful Lalique Champs-Elysées centerpiece bowl weighing in at over sixteen pounds and measuring over eighteen inches in length. This iconic Lalique masterpiece was designed by Marc Lalique in 1951. He was inspired by the trees lining the most famous boulevard in Paris. Finely detailed oak leaves point outward from the center of the bowl.It is a gorgeous design that translates beautifully into both clear and frosted sparkling French 24% lead crystal. Measurements: H 7.48" x L 18.11" x W 7.48 (H 19 cm x L 46 cm x W 19 cm), Weight: 16.53 lbs (7,50 kg). Handcrafted in the Alsace region of France where Lalique's workshops are located. This bowl is still an active item in the current Lalique catalog. Pre-owned beauty in absolutely perfect mint condition; no original box. Signed Lalique ® France in script on the bottom edge. This gorgeous bowl is free of defects including chips, scratches, or other damage. However, there as been one minor professional repair. Something was dropped on the bowl near the center creating what's known as a crush mark (similar to a rock chip on you car's windshield). We took it to a professional restorer and he ground out that small ding.
The smooth clear bottom now has a ridge which can be felt but is very hard to see. After adjusting lighting for repeated attempts I was able to get this to show in photograph number 7.
The area to the upper right of center that has a different shading is where the ding was ground away. This is very minor in that it doesn't reduce the beauty of the bowl and isn't noticeable unless you run a finger over the area and feel the ridge.
This pristine bowl will be carefully packed and insured for full value. The item "Lalique Oak Leaf Champs Elysees Centerpiece Bowl Excellent Condition 18 Length" is in sale since Saturday, September 7, 2019.
