Languedoc Medium Vase, Green

Languedoc is the sun-drenched region in the South of France that inspired many artists, including René Lalique who designed this vase with accentuated relief and generous proportions in 1929. Fashioned in satin-finished and re-polished crystal, cactus leaves overlay in a graphic play on repetition. René Lalique founded his firm in Paris in 1888, 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.
