Lalique Dampierre Vase
Designed by Lalique in 1948, this magnificent handcrafted crystal vase depicts satin-finish birds peering between garlands. René Lalique founded his firm in Paris in 1885, and soon became a celebrated jeweler whose designs contributed significantly to the Art Nouveau movement at the turn of the century. In the 1920s, an order for perfume bottles led him to develop a glass-making technique that would endure as Lalique’s signature characteristics: iced surfaces, elaborate or partially realistic patterns in relief, and occasionally applied or inlaid color. 4 3/4" diam. x 5"H. Made in France.
