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 that really sparkles. It has that classic Lalique look of satinized or frosted glass contrasting with sparkling and ultra transparent clear crystal. One of the great things about owning a beautiful Lalique collectible is that lead crystal doesn't deteriorate over time. This one has been well cared for over the years. You'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between this one and a new one.We do not have the original box but will carefully pack (double box) and insure.
