When René Lalique died in 1945, his son Marc took over the business. One of the first things Marc did was to 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. Marc designed this Narcisse vase in 1967. In mythology, Narcissus was a young man of great beauty who falls in love with his own reflection in the water. One of the great things about owning a beautiful Lalique collectible is that lead crystal doesn't deteriorate over time.
