This is an exquisite vase perfectly executed and in mint condition. I could find no chips, fleabites, scratches, bruises, scuffs, repairs, or other signs of damage. Has protective scratch protecting pads on the bottom. My fourth photo shows the vase sitting next to a lamp.
Notice how this vase captures and redisplays light. It really comes alive when well lit. Marcs design is a sensual blend of frosted and smooth glass complimented by the delicately formed fluid lines. There are four very large frosted leaves rising up from the base of the vase.The leaves are separated by clear crystal. They are also deeply indented into the thick crystal walls of the vase.
The deep indentation of the leaves somewhat explains the extra thick walls of this vase (0.8). Hand-crafted in Laliques Alsace France workshops. As best I can tell, this was designed in the 1960s.
Measurements: A little under 10.5 inches in height, Top Diameter about 8.25 inches, base width at widest point about 5.625 The vase walls are extremely thick measuring about 0.8 inches. The form is cylindrical and tapering. This is an exquisite and beautiful lead crystal vase.
René Lalique founded the company and managed it until WWII. He died in 1945 and was succeeded by his son Marc.
Marcs first big decision was to switch the formula from 12% lead demi crystal to 24% lead crystal. This made the products much brighter, sparkling, more transparent, and much heavier. This vase takes great advantage of this cyrstal and displays beautifully.
