This pre-owned Lalique vase is a classic piece and has come to be celebrated as a symbol of fine craftsmanship as well as of grace and sensuality. It was handcrafted in France and designed by René Lalique in 1927.
This heavy vase has a frosted/satin and clear crystal finish. It stands 9.45" tall with a top opening diameter of 7.44" and a bottom/base diameter of 5.25 (H 24cm x D 18.9 cm). It weighs 14.3 lbs (6.5kg).
There are ten different nude female figures in high relief around the vase. This vase is in perfect mint condition.I find no scratches, fleabites, or other damage. Though it is a pre-owned vase, it was strictly a display item.
It was never actually used as a vase, so there are no hard water stains or scratches inside the vase. It was displayed in an enclosed glass dust-free china cabinet for its entire life. Since its original release, it has been a staple in the Lalique collection and has become a lasting symbol of Laliques celebrated style. Lalique continues to manufacture and sell this item today. The Bacchantes vase has come to be an iconic Lalique design.
There is a splendor and sensuality seldom captured in a work of art. The meticulous detailing, carved by hand, adds a playful use of light and dimension.
